Coronavirus Information Center

Need to take a COVID-19 test?  Well, now you can at home!  Costco is now selling them online.

For those of you who don’t want to head out to find a place to get tested, you can now do it from your home.

The PCR saliva kits can be used without oversight at home and don’t involve painful nasal swabs.

You can get your results within 24-72 hours from the time the lab receives the kit.

The at-home tests, which have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for Emergency Use Authorization, allow customers to test for coronavirus via saliva samples from home, in the office or in pharmacy self-administration.

Costco marked the item as FSA eligible, meaning that it may be purchased using a Flexible Spending Account for health care costs.

They are kind of expensive…The at-home tests run between $109 – $155.

Here is a link if you want to purchase them.
