Oakland airport 1st in nation to sell COVID kits in vending machines

Oakland International Airport on Monday announced that it is the first airport in the United States to begin selling COVID test kits in vending machines.


In a statement, the airport said that these contactless kiosks are located at both airport terminals.


The vending machines are selling kits called "At-Home Saliva RT-PCT" tests. Customers take the test on their own and then return saliva samples via FedEx. They'll get their results on a mobile phone app within 24 hours, said airport spokesman Robert Bernardo.


Test kits range from $130 to $150. Bernardo said that was the standard price of a kit.
