How it Works
The COVID-19 Rapid test can be used as a tool to help determine if you have an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) is a disease caused by a virus that is contagious and spreads quickly.
COVID-19 can cause a wide range of symptoms that may be mild or severe. Most people with a COVID-19 infection have mild symptoms that can feel much like a cold or the flu, but others can become severely ill. COVID-19 may attack more than your lungs and respiratory system. Other parts of your body may also be affected by the disease.
It is important to use a test to know if you have a COVID-19 infection, which can require a period of isolation. If you have symptoms such as high fever, chills, sore throat, cough, and congestion, testing and contacting a healthcare provider immediately can help you receive appropriate treatment options and help protect those around you. If you are experiencing difficulty breathing, you should seek immediate medical attention. DO NOT WAIT FOR YOUR TEST RESULTS.
The populations at the highest risk for developing complications from this highly contagious virus are those with weakened immune systems who:
Are 65 years old and up
Have a pre-existing medical condition like diabetes
Are taking immunosuppressive medications for organ transplant or cancer
Complications of infection with COVID-19 include heart disease, stroke, and may require a ventilator to support breathing. Long-term effects are known as “post-COVID-19 syndrome.” The single best way to reduce the risk of COVID-19, and its potentially serious complications, is to follow the CDC's guidelines for staying up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines.
