This is a nasal swab, but shallower and therefore less unpleasant than the usual PCR or antigen tests.

Be careful, they are not sufficient on their own: in the event of a positive test, a PCR test will be necessary to confirm it.

It will not be possible for you to assert the result of a self-test to travel during this period of fight against the spread of the virus. Only the PCR test has probative value.

The self-tests (ATN) are sold only in pharmacies.

The self-test is recommended for asymptomatic people.

The self-test should not be used if the person is symptomatic or has contact. In these cases, it is imperative to perform an RT-PCR examination by nasopharyngeal swab.

Self-test can be performed on people over the age of 15.

If the result of the self-test is negative, it is advisable to continue to respect the barrier gestures.

On the other hand, if the result of the self-test is positive, it is necessary to:

  1. Isolate yourself and respect barrier gestures
  2. Notify your attending physician
  3. Perform an RT-PCR test (People living under the same roof should also perform an RT-PCR test)

If the result of the RT-PCR test is positive, the person will continue their isolation for another 7 days. And will respect the reinforced barrier gestures for an additional 7 days.
