COVID-19, Flu, and RSV Test

There’s more than just the flu to worry about this fall. If you’re not feeling well, it could be SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), flu, or a sinus infection (respiratory syncytial virus or RSV).

COVID, Flu and RSV Testing

There’s more than just the flu to worry about this fall. If you’re not feeling well, it could be SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), flu, or a sinus infection (respiratory syncytial virus or RSV). Symptoms of these respiratory infections are often similar, making it difficult to determine what might be making you feel sick.

Covid, flu and RSV can be difficult to distinguish, since they share many common symptoms. But it’s useful to know which virus you have, since that determines the treatments you should receive and how long you should isolate.
RT-PCR Testing
With just 1 combination swab, the COVID-19, Flu, and RSV test helps you and your doctor determine if you have COVID-19, the flu, or RSV. It eliminates the need for multiple tests or doctor visits, and can help you get the right treatment plan as soon as possible. The combination testing approach helps increase testing capacity during the busy flu season and speeds up the time to a diagnosis.

COVID-19, Flu, And RSV Symptoms

Whether caused by COVID-19, influenza, or RSV, the symptoms can be very similar:
Fever or feeling feverish/chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue (tiredness)
Headache
Fatigue (tiredness)
Runny or stuffy nose
Muscle pain or body aches
Vomiting and diarrhea (more common in children than adults)

Discuss with your doctor

Regardless of your test result, you should discuss your results with your doctor and continue to follow any safety precautions recommended by public health experts. This can help you and your community better manage the risks and benefits of resuming daily activities.
Nasal swab
Only 1 sample is taken via nasal swab, and it is then tested for influenza A and B, RSV, and COVID-19—all at the same time. The test results will rule in or rule out each of the viral infections.
Combination testing is recommended only if you are experiencing symptoms of a viral respiratory illness. Symptoms commonly include fever, chills, headache, tiredness, cough, and sinus congestion. Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea may also occur, primarily in children, but are less common.
