Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long does it take to receive my results from a Rapid COVID and/or COVID & FLU Antigen test?
You will receive your results within 10-15 minutes after completing the test. Your results will be texted to the phone number you provide at the time of testing.
Q. What is the difference between a Rapid antigen test and a PCR test:
A rapid antigen test detects the presence of circulating virus in the nasopharynx area. It is a quick and reliable test however the PCR test is the “gold standard” test and is sent out to our lab and analyzed and used as a confirmatory test. For additional questions, please ask an associate prior to starting your test(s).
– We recommend obtaining a PCR test to confirm any negative Rapid antigen test.
