Hackensack Meridian Urgent Cares offer rapid COVID-19 antigen tests.

Rapid antigen tests are most effective in people being tested at height of illness when the virus’ presence in the body is highest.

People with and without symptoms can get a PCR test to confirm their COVID-19 status. PCR tests are more accurate in detecting the virus in those without symptoms or those with symptoms who may not be at the peak of their illness.
