Mayo Clinic Q&A: Will there be an At-Home Test for COVID-19?
Recently, the Food and Drug Administration paved the way for commercial developers to create at-home COVID-19 tests.

And that, as you know, would be huge," says Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious diseases expert and head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group. (Published 08/07/2020)
