U.S. consumers may one day be able to acquire at-home Covid-19 test kits by air thanks to a new partnership between retail giant Walmart, clinical laboratory Quest Diagnostics and drone services provider DroneUp.

In a blog post, Walmart said it will begin trial deliveries of Covid-19 collection kits starting Sept. 22 in North Las Vegas, with Cheektowaga, N.Y., which is just outside Buffalo, to follow in early October.
