COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Point of Care (POC) tests (for professional use)

rapid-antigen-test

The COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Self-Test (for home use) is intended for unsupervised testing in the home or other environment.

The COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Point of Care (POC) tests (for professional use) are intended for use at the point of care and must be used by relevant practitioners, or persons under their supervision, who are trained in the correct use of the goods and the interpretation of the test results. These tests must not be supplied for the purpose of self-testing.

Negative test results do not exclude infection with COVID-19 (so face masks, social distancing and good hygiene practice must be maintained).

Follow current government health messaging regarding polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing requirements.
