What Does a Flu Test Involve?
The flu (influenza) is a highly contagious viral infection. Flu tests screen for influenza viruses A and B and help rule out other common causes of flu symptoms, such as the cold, as well as less common but more serious illnesses like COVID-19.
During a rapid flu test, a long, thin cotton swab is gently inserted toward the back of the throat to collect a saliva sample. The sample is then promptly evaluated in our clinical lab and results are usually ready in about 15 minutes. Based on the outcome of the test, our practitioners will prescribe an appropriate treatment plan and provide guidance on how to avoid spreading illness to others.
