What Type of Test Should I get?

If you are required to get a COVID-19 test for travel, work, school, or an event, ask if the organizers or administrators of the group are requiring a specific type of test before going to a testing location. You may be required to get a specific type of test. 

To test if you currently have COVID--19, you should get a viral/diagnostic test. This includes molecular tests (NAATs, PCR tests, and LAMP tests) and Antigen tests. Do not get an antibody test because antibody tests do not test for active infections. 

If you have questions about your medical care, please consult your medical provider.
