BUFFALO, N.Y. — There is now another option available for those looking for a rapid COVID-19 test.

Members of the D'Youville College School of Pharmacy will be offering the antigen tests starting Thursday (February 11) in the lobby of the college Academic Center located at 242 Fargo Avenue. 

Testing will be available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a reduced price of $39. No insurance or prescription is necessary, but you must register online ahead of time.

The Abbott BinaxNOW Rapid Ag test involves a nasal swab and results can be expected in as little as 15 minutes. It's intended for those who suspect they may have COVID-19 and can detect an infection within the first seven days of the onset of symptoms. Results will be emailed or can be accessed using the NAVICA app. The app can also be used to access results if needed for employment or air travel.
