  • July 02, 2020

Reuters (7/1, Maddipatla) reports Kroger’s health care unit said Wednesday that the FDA has approved the use of its “at-home sample collection kit for Covid-19” under an emergency authorization. “The kits will be available to frontline workers across its businesses beginning this week, Kroger said, adding that it plans to expand availability to other companies in the coming weeks, with a goal of processing up to 60,000 tests per week by the end of July.” Kroger said the test needs to be supervised by a health care professional via video chat and sent overnight to a laboratory to be processed.
