Not as accurate which way?

Rapid is not as accurate as the tests that take 1-2 days for results.

I think he's concerned about a false positive...
"Which way" = false positive vs false negative

I was told if they detect a positive they would conduct a PCR swab to confirm as they do have some false positives but negatives are more accurate. Personally I tested negative twice there this past week and everyone else in the waiting room while I was there was negative as well so donít worry too much :)

Iím here now & they do as @S209 said. A rapid & if there is a positive they do an overnight to confirm. Nurse claims both tests are 80% accurate both ways, no higher rate of false negatives than positives. But there is also many inconclusive results

Do I actually have to come it and take the test, or can I just mail in my check?  ;)

Thank you appreciate the help

I mean what I said elsewhere, you clearly care a lot & have educated yourself about this. But donít lower yourself to a yelling match too often.
I donít want to take this thread OT as well so this will be my final post on this in this thread. Please feel free to PM me if youíd like an actual answer as to why I answer the way that I do sometimes. The answer might surprise you.

Iíve rarely if ever actually gotten upset over any post on DDF. I may be harsher in some replies, but as Iíve said, I can explain that via PM if youíd like. I also have met @avromie7, @CountValentine and some other posters I frequently debate on DDF and he and they are great people whoís opinions I respect and I have absolutely zero hard feelings towards any of them. Theyíre also quite intelligent with smart viewpoints and frequently make valid arguments and fair criticisms of my points. The debates are always about the content and never about the poster, at least as far as Iím concerned. Some overlap can seem to occur while arguments are being made but I have never harbored any ill will towards another DDF poster BH.

Hope that clears up any misunderstandings and I apologize if I have been unnecessarily harsh and some arguments have been perceived as personal attacks instead of intellectual debates. This goes for @ExGingi and @yaakov35 as well ;)

This will be my final post on this topic in this thread beĒh.

when your spamming the rest of the threads about Dan's baby gift maybe you'll have some time to get it back on track.

do you know what type of test the rapid test is . Is it a pcp test or a antigen test and do you know what company it is from?

Permit test or new license?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
