Today’s Healthy Tip of the Week is about the two types of COVID test.

Join us this week as we learn which one is the best COVID test for you.

  • The first type of COVID test is the Rapid Antigen Test. 
  • It is the most common, most popular, and can be bought anytime.
  • Rapid Antigen Test is done by swabbing nasal passage.
  • Results are acquired in as early as 15 minutes.

  • The second type of COVID test is the PCR Test.
  • It follows the same pattern of swabbing nasal passage.
  • Most PCR Tests are administered in testing facilities.
  • It is the most accurate, however, results are acquired in 1-3 days.

  • The best COVID test is the one that’s best suited for you.
