(FOX NEWS) — The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first at-home saliva test for coronavirus.
The test works by having patients collect their saliva sample at home, and then returning it to the Rutgers Clinical Genomics Laboratory in a sealed package for testing.
Last month the agency approved the first at home-test which used samples collected from the patient’s nose with a nasal swab and saline.
