Taking a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test

  • COVID-19 Rapid Test (Antigen test) require a sample of cells that come from your inside of the nostril. The test sample is taken using a cotton swab that is inserted just inside your nostril.

   Before the test

  • You normally do not need to take any special steps to prepare for an antigen test. However, you should make sure to tell the person taking your test if you have had any recent symptoms of COVID-19.

   During the test

  • The test sample is obtained by inserting a cotton-tipped swab into your nostril. The sample is taken from lower in your nose (i.e. side of the nostril not back of the throat). These tests are very non invasive. Once the swab is inserted, it is rotated, and a sample is taken from both nostrils.

  • It takes under a minute to take the test. The insertion of the swab into your nose can tickle a bit. There may be a temporary sting or need to cough or sneeze, and you may feel your eyes water.

   After the test

  • There are no special post-test procedures, and it is rare to have any lasting effects after your test sample is taken.

  • If you are having a point-of-care test, your sample will be immediately analyzed to detect viral antigens. If you are taking an at-home test, you will need to follow the specific instructions for carrying out this part of the test analysis.
