Rapid COVID-19 Testing FAQs for Patients:

When can I get a RAPID COVID-19 test?

  • A RAPID COVID-19 test is most accurate when the test is done within the first 7 days of symptom onset. A RAPID COVID-19 test done after the first 7 days is not considered to be accurate, and a RT-PCR test is recommended.

Which test is more accurate/more sensitive for COVID-19?

  • According to the FDA, the RT-PCR test is the “gold standard” for COVID-19 testing today. Rapid COVID19 tests can miss 18-20% of active cases and having a negative rapid test does not necessarily mean you do not have COVID-19, especially if you have symptoms.
