The primary test recommended and offered is the PCR Molecular Test, a nasal swab which also can be performed as a throat swab. The swab will be sent off to a lab which will have the test on Monday. This test shows an active virus in patient
Rapid Antibody Test (finger prick blood test) is also available upon request. Results are back in 15 minutes. This test shows a current exposure and/or a previous exposure or illness. This test does not mean a person is currently infected with the virus, and is not helpful for diagnosis.
