COVID - Rapid Antigent Test: $50
This test uses a self-administered nasal swab that is inserted into each nostril less than one inch. You will swirl the swab around the inside of each nostril 5 times and we will coach you on proper technique. This is a very comfortable and easy swab to perform. We analyze the results onsite and report back to you in 2 hours or less.
This is not a PCR test and may NOT be used to shorten quarantine time for school or daycare children who have no symptoms. For travel, please verify the type of test you need (this test is antigen, not PCR). For ages 3 and up only. Younger children will need to have a parent/guardian perform the swab on them.

I hereby authorize staff at Pharm-A-Save Granite Falls to perform a Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test. I authorize the pharmacists to maintain a copy of this signed form and submit all information to local health departments as required. I indemnify the organizing body and all persons connected with them from any and all claims that may result from my voluntary participation in the tests.
I understand the test that I am receiving is a rapid diagnostic test using antigens. Antigen tests look for viral proteins, which are highly specific, meaning that if I test positive, I am very likely infected. False negatives are possible, either because the test does not detect viral particles present, or because it is too early or late in an infection. The test you are receiving today is an antigen test.
I understand that if my result is positive, I should follow up with my primary care doctor and local health department. I understand that this testing site is not acting as my medical provider. Testing does not replace treatment by my medical provider. I assume complete and full responsibility to take appropriate action with regards to my test results.
By signing this form I attest that I voluntarily agree to testing for COVID-19. I understand the test purpose procedures, possible benefits and risks. I understand that I may ask questions regarding the test at any time.
