CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Tests are intended for use at home, without the need for a medical professional. Any adult can use these tests to gather samples and test for COVID-19 at home. These CareStartTM home test kits use noninvasive anterior nasal and nasopharyngeal swabs, and they work by detecting the antigens found on the outside of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. CareStartTM OTC COVID-19 tests can determine whether someone has the COVID-19 virus and is currently ill. These tests work on symptomatic and asymptotic people. You should conduct the test twice over two or three days, waiting at least 24-48 hours between the first and second test.
