What Is a Rapid COVID-19 Test?
Unlike traditional COVID-19 tests that can take about a week to produce results, rapid COVID-19 testing offers results in less than 24 hours. Most rapid tests use a nasal or throat swab to collect a mucus sample, which is then screened for proteins or genetic material related to SARS-CoV-2—the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19.
It is a good idea to be tested if you believe you may have been exposed to the virus or if you’re displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19. These may include:
- Fever and/or chills
- Muscle aches
- Shortness of breath
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Nasal congestion or runny nose
