Since 2020, Covid 19 has been a worry for most people. In my family I’m immunocompromised and my husband, who has cancer. We stayed home for a long time, masked up and took the vaccines. Later when the tests were offered through drive-throughs in our town, we used that service twice. Each time we tested negative. One time we had some of the symptoms. The other time we were traveling to see grandbabies and wanted to take a test before we were around them.
Now, we have the convenience of home tests. There is no driving to the store or doctor’s office. The last thing you want to do when you’re sick is get out of the bed, get dressed, and go take a test. Taking a test at home is just as fast, just as accurate, and so easy!
I love the Lucira Check It Covid-19 home tests. We take them with us when we travel. It’s great to take one right before visiting our young grandchildren. We certainly don’t want to bring this awful virus to them. If we think we’ve been exposed we can easily take a test. These tests travel well and can be used in a hotel or any where!
We have been sick with something almost the entire year. We finally got a very mild case of Covid at the end of January, 2022. Our home tests gave us the assurance that we needed. We then knew what to watch for, in case we needed to see the doctor or go to the hospital. Thankfully, we got well at home after a few days.
This Covid 19 test is the only FDA EUA available for home use/over the counter.
Here are some of the best features of the Lucira Health test:
Lucira tests are 98% accurate when you compare them to lab tests
When you wait for results, a positive result can come as quickly as 11 minutes and a negative result can come by 30.
These tests should be conducted by parents for children 2-13. Ages 14+ can conduct it themselves.
Covid 19 and Omicron and its BA sublineages, BA.1 and BA.2 can all be detected with this test.
I was impressed to learn that these tests can be used by the whole family. Parents can administer this test to children 2-13. It’s so much easier to plan whether or not to attend events or travel now that you can test in the comfort of your own home. We plan to visit our grandchildren again soon, because we can’t keep away. We’ll make sure to take our trips with us. If we have any symptoms at all, we’ll take a test.
Being able to tell their parents that we just tested and we’re clear is very reassuring to us and them. Visiting my older relatives makes me very careful, too. They can be so susceptible to any virus that could quickly get very serious. I like to make sure that I’m not sick. Taking a Covid-19 test from Lucira brings me the peace of mind so that I can relax and enjoy the visit.
