Rapid Antigen Testing
Rapid antigen tests from Health Solutions by ShoppersTM use a shallow nasal swab and give results in as little as 15 minutes. They're an easy, fast, and effective way to screen for potential COVID-19 cases in the workplace, compared to PCR testing which can take up to 5 days for results.
Frequent Rapid Antigen Screening is also more effective at detecting the virus during peak infectiousness than infrequent highly sensitive and expensive PCR, minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
