Rapid Antigen Testing for COVID-19 in Sydney
24th August, 2021
Recently NSW Health has allowed the use of rapid antigen tests to help detect COVID-19 in people who do not have symptoms.
For Sydney businesses that require their workforce to be on-site, such as those in the logistics and warehousing, and construction and mining industries, a rapid antigen test at your premises can help protect your workforce and business operation as a whole.
This also extends to Sydney schools, considering rapid antigen testing for COVID-19 for when students, teachers and supervisors are in attendance for exams.

What is Rapid Antigen Testing not suitable for?
Cornerstone Health are specialists at setting up Rapid Antigen Testing clinics for businesses, administered by trained healthcare professionals. This type of testing is not suitable for self-testing or at-home testing for individuals.
Additionally, Rapid Antigen Testing is not a substitute for common COVID-safe practises including the correct wearing of face masks, social distancing and correct hand hygiene.
Positive test results or symptomatic persons will require immediate confirmatory testing with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
