Kroger Health gets FDA authorization for Covid-19 test home kit for frontline associatesFrom CNN's Amanda WattsKroger Health was granted emergency use authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration for its Covid-19 test home collection kit, the company announced today.

Russia registers virus vaccine, Putin's daughter given it Putin says Russia has registered 'world first' coronavirus vaccine Taylor Swift’s ‘Folklore’ Tops Midweek Chart In U.K.

The FDA has previously authorized other Covid-19 test home collection kits. The Kroger kit, in partnership with Gravity Diagnostics, will be available starting this week to “frontline associates across Kroger's Family of Companies.”Kroger is hoping to expand to other organizations and companies in the coming weeks with a goal of processing up to 60,000 tests per week by the end of July, it said.

How the Kroger kit works:Kroger said the kit will be mailed to an individual’s house if the person qualifies. The kit will include a nasal swab, transport vial, instructions and shipping labels. During a telehealth video chat, a health care professional will guide the individual through the process. The patient will overnight ship the sample and should have results back in 24 to 48 hours, Kroger Health outlined.

The kit will be available in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia initially. It expects to expand to additional states in a few weeks.The FDA said in the EUA “it is reasonable to believe that your product may be effective in diagnosing Covid-19 by serving as an appropriate means to collect and transport human specimens so that an authorized laboratory can detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA from the home-collected human specimen, and that the known and potential benefits of your product when used for such use, outweigh the known and potential risks of your product.”

Since the pandemic began:Kroger has been doing community testing around the country.Colleen Lindholz, president of Kroger Health said during this time, “we've observed some individuals do not have access to transportation or live near these community testing locations. To help ease this burden and provide greater accessibility, we will be offering a home testing solution to our associates first followed by other companies and organizations."

I have another type of virus in mind that needs eradicated. It grows in the Dem swamp and plagues humanity. DrainTheSwamp NoMasks Do it!!! SafetyScientist Gyms are not open in Phila. because the administration has older, mentally inflexible individuals that have not exercised since 1960 and do not understand the health value of weight training and crossfit! I hope the admistration will offer additional benefits to these gym owners!

Showing off its catch of the day I work in the hospital. We have a lot more cases now. I have to wear a mask all day. Quit being big babies about a mask. If you want to go to the store this is what we have to do. I do feel bad for the bars and restaurants all it takes is one bad apple not to have mask

Jeff Bezos CEO is pronounce the richest person in the world right but let me introduce myself as DAISY HONNAH world richest woman with her own very CEO DENOMINATION which is DAISY HONNAH CEO23 532901 NICK NAME CRIMINOLOGICAL CALCULATION CRIME ECONOMIC EVALUATION. He is a 🍆. I think it's great and should have started a long time ago. I have never seen so many baby grown ups crying about something that would help save their fellow man, no other country has had a problem with staying in and wearing masks. Just shows how self centered the American's are

Stupid That’s just silly but hey if y’all would’ve worn them earlier things may not have gotten this bad Here in Ontario we only need them in indoor areas or when social distancing is not gonna work :) Stalin, Hitler and Wolf I refuse to wear one. No one has said anything. I walk right into stores whereever. I walk into the local police station with out one. No one is gonna enforce it even if they could all you gotta do is walk by them and go bout you business. What can they do..

No This is exactly what Dr. Fauci warned everyone about. Is the Fake POTUS going to tell governors to again reopen their states. They should not have listened to the Fake Genius in the first place. More than 125,000 deaths not a Hoax, the intelligent Americans know who's the Hoax This should have been ordered in March

The mandatory masks work very well since the law enforcement could not tell the race or skin color of looter/robber/thief identifications at LATE at night with FEW People around. A few bad apples spoil the barrel. SwansonRodney Common sense ain’t so common. No one just lies about shutting the world down over a virus. They wouldn’t do this as a fake virus and screw over the economy of so many countries. That would be stupid. Too many think it’s a hoax. How dumb is that. 🤭

Here's a question, if it's required by the government are they going to provide them free of charge? Finally!! Illinois had huge numbers of COVID cases in March. We all wear masks and guess what, our numbers of cases plummeted. There is your proof masks work. The mandate requires people to wear a mask if you cannot social distance from people outside your household, when you are inside a business and while you are working.

👍 If you are In America, you should know by now that America is on it's way down. Consider looking at God for the solution instead of looking at Politics! Love it Governor Wolf. Now put some ass behind it and start handing out fines and arrests. We’re tired of the dont comply Karens. The racists and the bootlickers are already angry with it.

Pay attention!!!!! tatereeves This gives me communism vibes Thank you....finally...I took my dog out just now and I had a mask on and had to pass 4 neighbors walking without a mask...I wanted to give them a fine Coming to a state near you....as it should If we had a real leader in Washington that would have been done nationwide a long time. We would not be in the mess we are in today.

Lol Covid. In the car? Hurray! I live in PA and this is great news! Even in their own car? I only ask because I would NEVER give your website a hit. This is how we beat it but the police MUST enforce! riotwomennn But not this kind! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I already do this. It's just a short term discomfort to save lives. In fact, I just moved my whole apartment and my sis and I both wore masks for the whole move. It was hot but really not that inconvenient at all. We would've been hot either way. It's not that hard.

Isn't it too late too little Attacked Asian for wearing masks for so long time, then we need to wear masks. Shocking! 😱 MidwestNativeP better have that thang on you This needs to stop!!! 🤔 People who don't like wearing a mask are probably not going to like wearing a ventilator. When will people equate wearing masks and physical distancing with getting the economy to recover? We all have to do our part to protect one another and move forward.

Income tax, property tax, sales tax, soda tax, register for selective service, driver's license, business license, mandatory driver's insurance, all good..... but wear a mask? That's tyranny! What a shitshow this place has become. Everyone losing their shit and claiming it's tyranny? Guess you need to travel more to see what tyranny actually looks like - or, and here is a crazy thought, pick up a newspaper now and then...

We do this in Europe ! WEAR THAT MASK UNTIL THE VAXX IS HERE! Market based Media now reports only positive tests in order to ramp up Vaccine Sales. By the time the vaccines are on the market you will automatically agree to being jabbed. Good move but you still will have the idiots who think they are Superman not wear them. They don’t care about anyone but themselves, assholes

Without legislative action, it's null and void. Read the Pennsylvania State Constitution. Democrats demand conformity. GovAndyBeshear Please follow their lead. LetHerSpeak No frigging way, screw all of you. If it's okay to protest without wearing a mask, can't we just say we're protesting the mask mandate, itself? Seems fair...

Thank you, GovernorTomWolf Thank you GovernorTomWolf for thinking of my health Listen up Ohio!!! henrymcmaster Does it include the Burn Loot Murder (BLM) protesters and looters? Watch out for KarensMarch in 3...2...1..... Cantbreathers freaking out with their conspiracy bullcrap. Remember this? Wearing a mask to protect others is not exactly the end of the world.

What about hazard pay Okidoki

Top Democrats Push For Nationwide Mask Mandate, Trump Pushes BackJoe Biden has said that if he's elected president in November, he will use federal power to require all Americans to wear masks in public places to prevent the spread of coronavirus. What for? Biden is going to make us all wear masks? because of TrUMP we'll all HAVE to wear the masks. That's the big difference. One caused this scenario, one is protecting us from this catastrophe. US is 4.6% of the world pop. yet we have 25% of C19 virus deaths. Trump's denial, his cult's refusal to wear mask/stay home, and push to prematurely reopen is killing Americans by the thousands. Trump & cult are not just irresponsible, but a clear & present danger to our nation.

Wearing a mask has become politicized. Science says it shouldn’t be.Wearing a mask has become politicized. Science says it shouldn't be. Science is science. You can’t take every thing. gain & loss is a choice. America is the only country that has people stupid enough to believe the coronavirus is a hoax and that wearing a mask is fascism.
