Guardian Testing now offers COVID + Flu Combo Testing. Cough, fever, and a congestion can be common symptoms of COVID-19, influenza A/B, or RSV infection. Because Flu and COVID-19 often have similar symptoms, patients may consider both tests to confirm a diagnosis.
The capability to test for Influenza A/B and COVID-19 from a single nasopharyngeal swab sample means less discomfort for patients when compared with collecting a separate sample for each test. Testing a single sample for several pathogens uses fewer resources and takes less time when compared with running several individual tests on multiple samples to detect different pathogens. Similar to traditional COVID-19 Testing, PCR and Rapid Antigen options are available for the COVID-19 + Flu Combo Testing.
