Clarify the Role of Home Tests for COVID-19
Patients will ask about HOME antigen tests for COVID-19...now that OTC BinaxNow, Ellume, and QuickVue are in stores and online.
These viral tests use a nasal sample...give results in about 15 minutes...and are for patients age 2 and up with or withOUT symptoms.
BinaxNow or QuickVue shows results similarly to an at-home pregnancy test. Either costs about $20 to $30 for a box of 2 tests.
