3 prominent doctors on how best to use rapid, at-home COVID tests — and which single test has ‘been shown to be very accurate’

3 prominent doctors on how best to use rapid, at-home COVID tests — and which single test has ‘been shown to be very accurate’

When in doubt, get tested, says Dr. Shira Doron, hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center. “At-home tests might be less sensitive than lab-based PCR tests, but since they’re often used in situations [when] you would not have tested otherwise, we like to say any test is better than no test,” says Doron. Doron’s pick for a rapid, at-home test is the Binax NOW COVID-19 test, $23.99 for two at Walgreens.
