When it comes to getting tested for Covid, there are a few different options out there, and if you don’t know the differences between them, you can have trouble finding the test you need for your unique situation. First is the RT-PCR test. While it is considered highly accurate, it is incredibly precise and tests for the virus’s RNA in the patient’s body. This can make it take much longer than other rapid tests, and in terms of the potential for Covid to spread, this is not an ideal option.
The second option is the Rapid PCR test. This test checks for proteins in the body that are linked to Covid. Since it is testing for the most common protein linked to Covid, the results come back incredibly quickly but are still very accurate as well. If you’re looking to get tested immediately and have believable results, then the Rapid PCR test is well worth the cost.
Finding a Testing Location
Once they know what test they need to get, the biggest problem that individuals face is figuring out where to go to get tested and when they are open. As the number of cases surges again, finding a place to get tested may prove to be more and more difficult. Thankfully the city of Toronto has resources available here that record testing sites, locations, and hours for citizens that feel they need to get tested.
Other options are available if you need to get tested, such as at-home test kits. At Drip Hydration, we are proud to offer at-home Covid testing for our patients as a way to help protect people and help stop the spread of the pandemic. Contact us today if you’d like to get tested.
