    From the article:

    The program is still working with the agency to gain authorization.

    But in the interim, SCAN is taking advantage of the fact that research studies approved by institutional review boards do not require federal EUAs for the use of self-swab kits.

    Now, with approval and oversight from review boards at the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, SCAN is once again soliciting volunteers across the county — particularly among communities and groups that have not been well-represented and who might be at higher risk of contracting the virus.
