WHAT IS A RAPID ANTIGEN TEST? 

A rapid antigen test is a COVID-19 test that will tell you whether or not you have the virus. It’s done the same way as the PCR test at a clinic — yes, you still have to stick the swab up your nose.

But instead of waiting a day or more, the results come back within 10 to 15 minutes depending on the test. To get the result, you just add the nasal swab to a chemical solution and put that solution onto a reactive strip of paper or device, similar to a pregnancy test. (The device will then show if you have COVID-19)
