NDDOH Says Rapid COVID-19 Testing Continues to be Reliable

(Bismarck, ND) -- The North Dakota Department of Health says rapid COVID-19 testing continues to be a reliable option.  

The NDDoH says the rapid test does have drawbacks, such as a lower sensitivity rate than a PCR test. Officials say despite the sensitivity issue, false positives are low.  

Businesses can arrange regular testing for employees through their local health departments.
