Rapid antigen testing

In rapid antigen testing, the coronavirus sample is taken with a sample stick from the nasopharynx (nostril).

It takes approximately 30-45 minutes to get the result. When the result is ready, a nurse will write you a certificate proving that your test result was negative.

If your test result is positive, Aava’s personnel will give you instructions on what to do.
