What is antigen testing?
Antigen tests detect proteins specific to a virus that appears in infected individuals, which indicates active infection. Rapid antigen testing is beneficial because of their portability, ease-of-use, and quick time to result.

How can I interpret results?

POSITIVE: The presence of two lines at control line (C) and test line (T) indicates a positive COVID-19 test result (even if one of the lines is faint).
NEGATIVE: The presence of only the control line (C) indicates a negative COVID-19 test result.
INVALID: If there is no control line (C) after performing the test, the result is invalid
