Test for Current Infection (Viral Test)

Test for Current Infection (Viral Test)

People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, local external icon or state health department. Two types of viral tests can be used:Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) detect the virus’s genetic material and are commonly used in laboratories. Antigen tests detect viral proteins and are generally not as sensitive as NAATs, particularly if the antigen test is used on someone without COVID-19 symptoms. If you have a positive or negative antigen test, your healthcare provider may need to confirm the test result with a NAAT. How long it will take to get your test results depends on the test used.
