By NewsRadio 1080 KRLD

Getting tested for COVID-19 is getting easier, soon you'll be able to pick up a test kit at the local grocery store.

Tom Thumb and Albertsons pharmacies across North Texas are now offering at home COVID-19 test kits.

You can request one of the take home saliva tests online and then pick it up later at your local store. 

Officials with Albertsons say the results are typically sent via email or text within 72 hours.

Dr. Ben Newman with Texas A&M Texarkana says the take home tests are a big step in the right direction. He says the tests should be accurate and he’s hoping more can become available.

Payment for the tests will be out of pocket.
