Q. What if I test positive?
A. If you test positive, you will also have to do a PCR test at the GGD. Please contact them yourself so that they can do a source and contact investigation. Stay at home and observe the measures.
Q. I had corona several weeks ago. Is there a chance of a false positive with this antigen test?
A. No, there is no increased risk of false positive. Antigen tests reveal certain proteins of the virus in nasal and / or throat mucus. This way you will quickly know whether you are carrying the virus with you. GGD test lines often work with PCR tests. A PCR test reveals specific pieces of genetic material from the novel coronavirus. After an infection, dead viral material remains for quite a long time. So then you may test false positive if you have had corona, but only with a PCR test.
