Dr. Anthony Fauci just spilled the beans: contrary to the implicit promise numerous politicians made that COVID-19 restrictions would only last “until there’s an effective vaccine,” Fauci says the arrival of a vaccine won’t mean life will return to normal, perhaps for more than a year.
“If you’re talking about getting back to a degree of normality which resembles where we were prior to COVID, it’s going to be well into 2021, maybe even towards the end of 2021,” said the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on Friday.
MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY won't be required to take a coronavirus vaccine when it comes available through a new trial plan the Pentagon announced Wednesday, but that could change if the Food and Drug Administration moves beyond the emergency approval that currently allows for the initial distribution of the vaccine.
The majority of the kits are by prescription only, so after one is prescribed and shipped to you, you collect the sample at home, ship it back to a lab and wait for the results.
The FDA authorized 3 at home testing kits that are processed fully at home and give you results in minutes.
The Lucira COVID 19 All In One Test Kit and BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card home test which are available by prescription only.
The Ellume Covid 19 Home Test kit is over the counter so you don’t need a prescription from a healthcare provider.
The Pixel Kit by LabCorp is for those 18+ years old. It's FDA authorized and it's available without a prescription but it has to be sent back to and process by LabCorp.
LabCorp says on its webpage it’s "reserving access to COVID-19 at-home kits for individuals experiencing symptoms or those who have been asked to get tested."
The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday authorized the first rapid coronavirus test that can be taken at home without prescription and that yields immediate results.
The test could be a vital tool in the country’s fight against the virus — especially in the months before most Americans are vaccinated. Unlike previous home tests, this version does not require samples to be sent to a lab and can be taken without doctor’s orders by anyone older than 2.
The test, developed by Australian company Ellume, is just one of several positive developments for coronavirus testing.
With the first doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine now being administered in the U.S., the federal government is giving employers around the country the green light to require immunization for most workers.
In general, companies have the legal right to mandate that employees get a COVID-19 shot, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) said Wednesday. More specifically, employers are entitled — and required — to ensure a safe workplace in which "an individual shall not pose a direct threat to the health or safety of individuals in the workplace." That can mean a company requiring its workforce to be vaccinated.
The Americans with Disabilities Act limits an employer's ability to require workers to get a medical examination. But the EEOC's latest guidance clarifies that getting vaccinated does not constitute a medical exam. As a result, ordering employees to get a COVID-19 shot would not violate the ADA.
