An Amazon employee told Business Insider that they saw testing stations being set up at a warehouse in Fresno, California.
In a statement, the company confirmed that it has begun a “small-scale pilot,” but declined to say where or if COVID-19 testing would be done or if it would be mandatory.
Dr. Ashish Jha, direct of the Harvard Global Health Institute, previously told Business Insider he was skeptical that in-house testing was a good idea, saying it could put Amazon in competition with governments for testing resources.
