The rapid test currently available for COVID-19 is not as reliable when compared to the PCR test used at the CCPHC site. Also, rapid tests are only approved to use when a person is experiencing symptoms.
If a rapid test is used on a symptomatic person and the result is negative, it must be confirmed by a PCR test.
