NBA Covid Test Will Be Available in Texas


It worked for James Harden and the Rockets.

Texas is one of five states getting the same coronavirus test that was used by the NBA to keep players safe in the bubble.

The Department of Health and Human Services has launched a pilot program that also includes Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, and Alaska.

The test uses a self-administered nasal swab - this one taking particles from the lower part of the nose, so not as intrusive as a test you may have had at one a medical practitioner, and this test produces results in 20 minutes.

It's said to be more accurate than antigen tests.
