About the COVID-19 PCR test for kids
What is a COVID-19 PCR test?
How much does a COVID-19 PCR test for kids cost?
How accurate are COVID-19 PCR tests?
COVID-19 PCR tests are very accurate. It is sensitive enough to detect the virus even in the smallest samples and in people who are not showing any symptoms.
What is the difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test?
The difference between a PCR test and a rapid COVID-19 test is that the former takes a few days to get results but the results are more accurate because it can detect small amounts of the virus even when there are no symptoms. The latter, on the other hand, can generate results in as little as 15 minutes but can only detect if the virus is already active in your body.
Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?
Yes, there are at-home tests for COVID-19 that let you do the specimen collection yourself. For more accurate results from a healthcare professional, get tested at a testing center near you.
What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?
The different types of COVID-19 tests are the rapid antigen test, RT-PCR test, and the COVID antibody test. The rapid antigen and PCR tests both help detect if your child has an existing COVID infection. The main difference is that rapid tests generate results faster than PCR tests, but PCR tests generate more accurate results than rapid tests.
On the other hand, the COVID antibody test detects if your child has antibodies that indicate they had a COVID infection in the past.
What should parents do while waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results?
While waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results, parents should keep their child at home and away from other family members. Follow CDC recommendations regarding quarantine measures. Call a healthcare provider when your child gets sick and experiences severe symptoms.
