Antigen Self-Tests

Antigen self-tests, also called at-home tests or rapid self-tests, tell you if you have COVID‑19 in 15‑30 minutes. They may miss early infection. If you have COVID‑19 symptoms and test negative, repeat your test in 12 to 24 hours.

The expiration date for many of these tests have been extended. Prior to disposing of "expired" tests, please visit FDA's Extended Expiration Dates Table to see if the date was extended.

When to use these tests:

  • If you have symptoms or a close contact or someone in your household is exposed or has COVID‑19 symptoms
  • For work or schools (check with your employer/school to see what type of tests they accept)
  • Before or after family gatherings, parties, or holiday functions
  • After large events such as a sports games or faith-based services and after travel

Do not use a COVID-19 self-test in these situations:

  • To meet travel requirements
  • If you have already been tested at a testing site or health care provider and are waiting for results. Wait for your results and follow guidance.

COVID-19 Treatments Options

If you are at high risk for being hospitalized for COVID, it is important to getting tested soon and treated early. Oral antiviral pills or other treatment options may lower the chances of your illness getting worse if taken within 5 days of symptoms. There is no cost for treatment regardless of insurance or immigration status.

Here are three ways to receive treatment:

Speak to your healthcare provider first.

Your provider can give you a prescription that can be filled at participating pharmacies or anywhere antivirals are available.

Make a Free Telehealth Appointment for COVID-19 Treatment

Telehealth is a free and easy way to see if COVID-19 oral antivirals such as Paxlovid, are right for you. Oral antivirals, which are COVID-19 treatment pills taken by mouth, are available by prescription only. They must be taken within the first five days of experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and want to schedule a virtual telehealth appointment with a health care provider to determine treatment eligibility, begin your free consultation below and complete a brief intake form.

Completing the intake form to request a consultation should take you approximately 5 minutes. If the information provided indicates you may be eligible for treatment, you will be given a link for a video consultation with a health care provider. After joining the video call, a health care provider will join you within 5–30 minutes to complete the evaluation.

After receiving a telehealth consultation, if treatment is appropriate for you, you will receive a prescription for either free home delivery or pharmacy pickup.
