(Adds details on tests)

March 10 (Reuters) - Citigroup Inc has offered rapid at-home COVID-19 testing to some employees that have continued to work at its U.S. branches and offices through the pandemic as they were unable perform their roles remotely, the bank said in a blog post on Wednesday.

The at-home COVID-19 testing program uses a rapid antigen test, which offers results within 20 minutes, the bank said, adding the test is awaiting emergency use approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. http://citi.us/3v9SV3G

Citi said it has offered employees at its Chicago area branches and those working on its trading floors in New York a chance to participate in the home testing program.

The bank said it would use the learnings from this initial pilot for its broader plans around at-home testing and future return to office strategy.

The company intends to make at-home testing widely available to more employees in the coming months, it added. (Reporting by Noor Zainab Hussain in Bengaluru; Editing by Vinay Dwivedi)
