Home testing company Everlywell said that it will launch a home test kit with telehealth diagnosis for COVID-19 on Monday. The Austin, Texas-based company said it will release 30,000 tests immediately and is working with multiple labs to have testing and diagnosis capacity for a quarter of a million people weekly.
Consumers who have COVID-19 symptoms can order the test online and send completed test kits overnight to a CLIA-certified laboratory. Secure digital results will be available online within 48 hours of the lab receiving the sample, and free telehealth consultations with an independent, board-certified physician will be available for those with positive results, according to Everlywell.
COVID-19 Tests are not yet available for individual purchase. More information
