Today’s Solutions: May 19, 2024

In an effort to make health and wellness essentials as accessible as possible for the public, DoorDash has announced its plan to allow customers to order at-home Covid-19 testing kits. To make this happen, the delivery company has partnered with two US-based digital health companies, Vault Health, and EverlyWell.

This collaboration allows DoorDash customers to order kits directly from the app in 12 markets. Alternatively, you can order the kits from Vault Health’s website in 20 markets with same-day delivery courtesy of DoorDash.

Both Vault Health and EverlyWell kits have polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, which are considered the most accurate tests available on the market, and both companies guarantee results within 24 to 48 hours.

They have both received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for at-home testing, but while the EverlyWell testing kit is a self-administered nasal swab that can be done without supervision, the Vault Health kit is a saliva test and requires recipients to be supervised over Zoom.

At the moment, the markets supported by DoorDash include Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, and Phoenix, but according to the company, there are plans to add more cities in the near future.
