“Antigen test kits are best used as screening tools,” says Dave Covell, MPH, RS, Health Commissioner at LCPH. “It is recommended that you ask a healthcare provider for a confirmatory PCR test if you get a positive home test kit result.”

In order to use these tests, you must have mild symptoms, have access to the internet and have a smartphone or tablet with a camera or a computer with a webcam.
