This was a snapshot I took from the chat 11/18
Our district is not accepting that as a valid rapid test to return to school. We require the PCR in that case.
For mild symptoms such as a runny nose, YES we accept the rapid antigen test. If there is strong suspicion of COVID, severe symptoms, such as loss of the sense of taste or smell, a contact of a contact plus symptoms, we would not. Hope this helps. It's not a black and white answer.
Hey all! Clear Choice MD has language on their BD Veritor Rapid COVID-19 test basically saying a negative requires a PCR confirmation. This seems consistent with HAN #20 & 21 regarding the sensitivity of this test. Is there anyone out there who is taking this result for return to school without requiring the PCR? We are struggling since the language on the result seems to clearly indicate it is not sufficient...thanks for all feedback :-)
