DoorDash announced Monday that it will start offering its Chicago users same-day delivery on at-home COVID-19 test kits with quick turnaround times for results.

Through a partnership with Vault Health and Everlywell, two digital health companies, DoorDash users will be able to get a saliva or nasal swab test kit delivered to their doorstep and mail in their kit directly to a lab, receiving results in 24-48 hours, DoorDash said.

The Vault Health saliva test kit is $109 and the Everlywell nasal swab test kit is $119. Both may be reimbursed through insurance, according to the company. Both versions have been approved by the FDA for emergency use.

“With COVID-19 testing continuing to play a critical role in reopening plans, tests that can be taken at home and mailed to a lab offer greater convenience to customers, as they eliminate the need to make a trip to a testing facility or wait in long lines at the pharmacy or grocery store,” DoorDash said.

In addition to Chicago, the at-home tests will be available in other U.S. cities including Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, and Phoenix, “with more cities rolling out in the coming months,” the company said in a statement.
