There are machines like this in Hong Kong in the train stations. I got my test from one and there’s a staff member that operates the machine for you and he’s wearing gloves. When staff is not there there’s a designated queue to use the machine with a sanitizer dispenser. The kit costs around 4 dollars. This was very convenient because I would rather do the test at home and drop off the sample after. The drop off is set up outside a health center where they take your sample with your information and give you a confirmation ticket. The government texts your results in 2-3 days. The alternative would be lining up in a long line with other people in a test site which scares me more because what if I actually get covid from the testing areas instead?
The most stressful part is the waiting but I appreciated that this was easy for me to do. I’m not sure if its the best fit for America but I’m very glad we had this available.
