Rapid COVID Testing

Many of us are familiar with the molecular COVID-19 test, also known as a PCR or viral test, which provides results within a week or sometimes as quickly as 48 hours. Molecular tests detect the genetic material of a current and active virus.

A much quicker test, or rapid test, is now available at select locations. Antigen tests detect specific proteins on the surface of a current and active virus. Although they are less sensitive to the virus than molecular tests, health care providers often use these tests because they can provide same day results. A follow-up molecular (PCR) test may be recommended to confirm results.

KN95 masks and Rapid Test Kits are available, while supplies last.
