A: Yes! To help, we have two excellent posts written by our colleague, Your Local Epidemiologist (YLE).
Post 1: PCR vs. Rapid antigen test:
PCR (rapid or not) outperforms the antigen test. Still, there is promise in the new tests being developed and YLE goes through the numbers here.
Post 2: The CDC’s new testing guidelines:
Summary and how to make sense of testing recommendations with decision tree made by YLE.
We thank YLE for these two informative posts. And if you need a quick primer on testing, this one is brief and informative.
We hope you all have a safe and peaceful weekend. Stay safe. Stay sane.
