Feeling Sick? Is it Coronavirus or the Flu?

COVID-19 shares many of the same symptoms as Influenza A and B making it challenging to determine which you have based on symptoms alone. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, we recommend our Rapid 3-in-1 COVID-19 + Flu A & B Antigen Test for $149. Find out in about 2-3 to hours whether you are positive for any of these 3 viruses.
