Order a burger, Get a COVID TEST?


Need a COVID Test with that burger? Don't laugh.....

Some US residents can now get one alongside a meal after food ordering service Door Dash announced they'll deliver at-home tests to cities across the country.

Two types of tests will be available - a nasal swab or a saliva sample - the company said. Both can yield results within 24 to 48 hours.

It is the first such scheme to be launched by a delivery service.

"Amidst the pandemic, one of our priorities has been to make health and wellness essentials more accessible for customers, and we will continue to expand our offerings in the healthcare space," a spokesperson for DoorDash said.

DoorDash is offering polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test kits from Vault Health and Everlywell. Such tests can pick up smaller amounts of the virus that other tests might miss.

They can be ordered in two ways: via the DoorDash app or through Vault Health's website.

Delivery via the app is available in 12 cities including Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, and Phoenix, with plans to expand
