Fall Banter and General Discussion in New England Posted November 24, 2020 23 minutes ago, Whineminster said: anyone have a rough idea of accurate the rapid covid test is? @WhitinsvilleWX? Many places don't seem to be accepting it for "return to work". The newer Abbott one is pretty good. In my opinion, if you’re negative by that one, you’re either truly negative or haven’t got enough virus to be sick or contagious. The PCR test was the first one out and powers that be are stuck to it. Again in my opinion, the PCR test as interpreted now is junk. If we dont go to widespread rapid antigen testing on a weekly basis, testing asymptomatic people by a PCR test that takes 1-4 days to get the results back is useless. Companies require it since the state of Massachusetts mandates the PCR test. Otherwise, I don’t think Corporation X would care much which test you take.
