FDA’s Response Regarding Approved COVID-19 Tests

In their effort to prepare for the Biden administration’s vaccinate-or-test mandate on employers with 100 or more employees, some OMA members have asked which COVID-19 tests are approved by the FDA.

The FDA this week told OMA staff the agency “has not ‘approved’ any COVID-19 test,” but that several are authorized under the agency’s emergency-use authorization. Members can view the entire list of COVID-19 tests at the FDA’s site. (OMA member Abbott offers a reliable COVID-19 test that produces rapid results.) 11/11/2021
