The test procedure is quick and easy, and produces a minimal amount of discomfort. Using a short nasal swab with a soft tip, you will collect your own sample. nasal swabYou will insert the swab inside one nostril only until the soft tip is no longer visible. After rotating the swab in a circle around the inside edge of your nostril at least three times, you will then repeat this step with your other nostril.

Rapid test results are usually available in under half an hour. You will be notified by phone only if the results are positive. You will be notified of a negative result.
