A PCR-based molecular COVID-19 test can be used to detect an extremely small amount of virus in the body, making this a highly sensitive testing method.
Standard turn-around time for PCR test results is within 24-48 hours. Rapid Antigen test results are normally completed within 15-30 minutes; however, they are not as accurate as a PCR test.

With variants circulating and a large percentage of the population unvaccinated, COVID-19 testing remains an important tool in containing the virus. The chance of detecting the virus that causes COVID-19 increases with more frequent testing, no matter the type of test, a new study found. Both (PCR) polymerase chain reaction and antigen tests, paired with rapid results reporting, can achieve 98% sensitivity if deployed at least every three days.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing infection, hospitalization, and death.
Most people who get COVID-19 are unvaccinated. However, since vaccines are not 100% effective at preventing infection, some people who are fully vaccinated will still get COVID-19. An infection of a fully vaccinated person is referred to as a breakthrough infection. People who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious but are less likely than unvaccinated people to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19. To reduce the risk of becoming infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) including the Delta variant, and potentially spreading it to others, CDC recommends that fully vaccinated people:
