Regardless of your vaccination status, getting yourself regularly tested for COVID-19 is a good way of adding that much-needed precaution against the highly transmissible delta variant to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

Why opt for a home COVID test?

Also, if you’re looking to test your children, home tests provide an improved experience. Nasal swabs can get somewhat painful and uncomfortable for small children and by having them go through the tests in a familiar environment, your children will experience less stress. 

Finally, for those with restricted mobility such as people of determination, home testing is ideal as they are not required to leave their home. Home testing is also ideal for those looking to minimize their exposure to the public.
