What is Rapid COVID-19 Testing? How does it work?
A Rapid COVID-19 test is an antigen test that can quickly detect the presence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Rapid COVID testing uses a swab, just like a standard COVID-19 test, to analyze a sample that evaluates if a patient current has a COVID-19 infection.
Rapid tests provide a patient their results on the same day of testing and with high levels of accuracy. The average time it takes to complete a test is 15 minutes, while results come back a little bit after that time.
AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock performs Rapid COVID-19 testing using Abbot molecular PCR tests that can provide test results on the same day as a patient visit.
