A lab tech prepared specimens for the analyzer during COVID-19 testing in the lab at Memorial Regional South in Hollywood, Fla., on May 6, 2020. The FDA is expanding the number of COVID tests that let people test themselves in their own homes and get results delivered in minutes.

A year ago, people with obvious signs of COVID-19 had a hard time getting tested to confirm a diagnosis, even if they were at the hospital.

Today any Minnesotan can get tested for free by showing up at a community site or having a test mailed to them. Results have been e-mailed back by contractor Vault Health often as soon as 18 hours.

But for those who need results even faster and are willing to pay, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized several COVID tests that let people test themselves in their own homes and get results delivered in minutes.
