What is Rapid Antigen Testing (RAT)?
Rapid antigen testing is a screening tool to help detect COVID-19 in people without any symptoms.
For those with symptoms of COVID-19, you must attend a testing clinic for a standard test (called a PCR test).
Why rapid antigen testing is being implemented in your workplace?
Your employer has implemented a regular workplace screening initiative to protect you, your family, your colleagues and customers. Screening employees at least twice a week can help to quickly identify and isolate those who have COVID-19, including those who don’t have any symptoms. Early identification helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in your workplace and in your community. If you’ve been vaccinated, you should still take part in your workplace screening initiative. The vaccines are safe and effective and reduce your chance of spreading the virus to those around you by about 90%
What does the test involve?
The rapid antigen test is quick and easy. It involves a nasal swab (using a small cotton bud) that is then placed into a chemical solution and the solution is tested on the receptacle, which displays a result within 15 to 20 minutes. Rapid antigen tests detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19.
If you get a positive test result?
If you get a positive rapid antigen test result, you must immediately get a standard test (called a PCR test) at a NSW testing clinic to confirm the result of your screening test. Rapid antigen tests will detect most cases of COVID-19 but are not as accurate as a PCR test. Isolate until you get a negative PCR result. Isolating immediately can help break chains of transmission and limit the spread of COVID-19 at your workplace.
If you get a negative test result?
Continue to follow the latest health advice and restrictions in your area. If you develop any symptoms, even if mild, you must immediately get a standard COVID-19 test (PCR test) and isolate until you get a negative result.
Is personal data collected?
Any testing data collected will only be used to help NSW Health make public health decisions. None of your personal health data is used without your consent.
What if a someone declines to be tested?
Where a person declines a rapid antigen test at their place of work, then it is recommended that they do not enter site until they can provide evidence of a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test result. A recent COVID-19 test result is considered a result from within the previous 72 hours.
How often should staff be tested?
Under the NSW Health “Framework for the Provision of Rapid Antigen Screening for COVID-19 in Clinical and Non-Clinical setting – August 2021 V1.1”.
COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing should be conducted 2-3 times per week with individuals in identified priority settings.
