RSV is highly contagious and can spread through respiratory droplets. Quick diagnosis through rapid testing helps prevent the spread of the virus, especially in settings like daycare centers or nursing homes.
If you, or especially if an infant or young child, are experiencing symptoms like cough, runny nose, fever, wheezing, and difficulty breathing, a rapid RSV test can help determine if RSV is the cause of the symptoms.
If your RSV test comes back positive, a Rume Health provider will reach out to you to create a treatment plan.
These treatment plans are covered by the test’s price and do not involve any additional charges on your part! If you’re prescribed a medication, it will be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.
Note that antibiotics aren’t used to treat RSV, but medication may be prescribed to help open airways and improve breathing.
