Self-Driving Shuttles Are ferrying COVID-19 Tests

This is an excellent use of self-driving vehicles.

The Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville Transportation Authority, Navya and Beep are using completely self-driving shuttles to carry COVID-19 tests from a drive-thru location to the Mayo Clinic campus. The move theoretically minimizes exposure to the virus and frees up medical staff for taking care of patients.
