Can I purchase an antigen test for my own use?

Yes, there are several different types of antigen tests you can purchase over the counter.  At-home antigen tests are available for the public to purchase to test for COVID-19. Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized several at-home COVID-19 testing kits under emergency use authorization. The kits are designed to use a self-administered nasal swab.  For question regarding test results and what they mean, contact your health care provider.  For a detailed list of FDA antigen tests that are authorized for home use, see the FDA website for more information.
