What is a Self-Test or At-Home Test?

Self-tests for COVID-19 give rapid results and can be taken anywhere, regardless of your vaccination status or whether or not you have symptoms.
• They detect current infection and are sometimes also called “home tests,” “at-home tests,” or “over-the-counter (OTC) tests.”
• They give your result in a few minutes and are different from laboratory-based tests that may take days to return your result.
• Self-tests along with vaccination, wearing a well-fitted mask, and physical distancing, help protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19.
• Self-tests do not detect antibodies which would suggest a previous infection and they do not measure your level of immunity.

Read the complete manufacturer’s instructions for use before using the test.

• To use an at-home test, you will collect a nasal specimen and then test that specimen.
• If you do not follow the manufacturer’s instructions, your test result may be incorrect.
• Wash your hands before and after you collect a nasal specimen for your test.

Can the rapid test be done without symptoms?

The rapid COVID-19 test can be done even if you don’t have symptoms. Nevertheless, if you’re infected and still have a low concentration of the virus in your body (and hence, no symptoms) then the test results might not be completely accurate. Proper precaution and medical consultation are always recommended.

Why are rapid tests important today? 

Rapid tests are important since they provide reliable and quick results. They are helping contain the pandemic and break the chain of infectivity hand in hand with other available tests. The more we test, the safer we are.
