Authorized tests are organized by the type of test (molecular or antigen) and use setting.

  • An antigen test, frequently used for rapid testing, detects viral proteins found in SARS-CoV-2. Results are usually available in 30 minutes or less. Most over-the-counter COVID-19 tests are antigen tests.
