Last week my friend had the rapid test and it was positive for COVID. He then took a test that gave results in 2 or 3 days and that test was negative. We read that the rapid tests are less reliable but we're not sure if that's correct.

I wonder which test is the most accurate.

In my area rapid tests are not free- in fact they are very expensive, over $100. I would just do the PCR test if I were you. Walgreens has it for free and/or you can check to see if there are any free community testing sites. In my area everything requires an appointment now, there are no walk in sites anymore, which is kind of annoying, but it is what it is.

They have a rapid PCR test now, which is what I had the week before last. I had results in less than 30 minutes! And yes, definitely get tested. Our 34 y/o vaccinated son who works in a prison had a stuffy nose and fatigue last week. He was tested and was positive. So far his vaccinated wife remains unaffected. Good luck!

We had results back the next morning and only paid our regular copay.

Walgreens has covid tests by appointment if there is one near you, Our Walgreens has drive-up tests.

Try CVS. They have a sign up but ours are also doing walk in. I live in Florida- enough said.

Check the health department site in your state. My state has an list of places where Ďfreeí tests are available. You have to give your insurance info, but there is no out of pocket cost.

You can do the rapid PCR and have the results in 30 minutes but itís expensive. My dh paid $200 for the rapid PCR.

I had the pcr test in the spring at urgent care and got results less than 24 hours later. Good luck.

I am fully vaccinated and have no known exposure to Covid. However my DH works with and plays cards with unvaccinated persons. My thought is he could be asymptotic. He is also vaccinated. I donít have the best immune system. I am retired so no worries about school.
I have symptoms such as low fever, muscle aches, slight cough and slight sore throat.
Iím guessing I need to get tested. It seems that the recommended test is the PCR tests which takes a few days to get results. Is this correct?
Any thoughts?
