That’s right the Wholesale Giant is selling coronavirus test kits. Members can choose between two kit options and get their test results from AZOVA. The two kits offered by the retailer cost $129.99 or $139.99, which includes a video observation.
The PCR saliva kits can be used at home and don’t involve the “painful nasal swabs,” according to the description on Costco’s website. The test results usually only take 24-48 hours once an AZOVA lab receives the kit.
Costco added that the kits are eligible to be purchased with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Customers just need to register their kit with AZOVA after checkout for each person who is taking the test.
“PCR tests are the gold standard testing method with the most accurate sensitivity and specificity currently on the market,” Costco said.
The Washington-based company says the kits are only available to purchase online, and they currently aren’t available in Pennsylvania, Nevada or Maryland.
