A positive test result means that proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were found in your sample.
It is very likely you have COVID-19 and it is important to be under the care of your health care provider. It
is also likely that you may be placed in isolation to avoid spreading the virus to others. There is a very
small chance that this test can give you a positive test result that is wrong (false positive). If you test
positive with the North American Diagnostics (NAD) Nucleo-OptionTM COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Self-Test
you should self-isolate and seek follow-up care with your health care provider as additional testing may
be necessary. Your health care provider will work with you to determine how best to care for you based
on your test result, medical history, and symptoms.

A negative test result means that proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found in your
sample. Read the serial testing section below if you test negative and are not experiencing COVID-19 like
symptoms. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection.

It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with
COVID-19. This means that you could possibly still have COVID-19 even though the test is negative. If you
test negative and continue to experience COVID-19 like symptoms of fever, cough, and/or shortness of
breath you should seek follow up care with your healthcare provider. Your health care provider will
consider the test result together with all other aspects of your medical history (such as symptoms, possible
exposures, and geographical location of places you have recently traveled) in deciding how to care for
you. For example, your healthcare provider may suggest you need another test to determine if you have
contracted the virus causing COVID-19.

It is important that you work with your healthcare provider to help

you understand the next steps you should take.

If no control line shows up on the test, the result is in-valid (even if a positive test line shows up. An in-
valid result means the test was not able to tell if you have COVID-19 or not. If the test is in valid, and you

have enough reagent left in the bottle a new swab should be used to collect a new nasal specimen and
the test should be run again using a new test and dropper bottle.
Please notify your healthcare provider of positive or negative results
