Can you take Covid antigen test on Shabbos


Hi Rabbi,
Can you take a Covid rapid antigen test on Shabbos? What if you are experiencing no symptoms? Mild symptoms?

Thank you



In general we do not take rapid covid tests o Shabbos because the lines of the results are considered roshem, part of meleches kosaiv. If someone has an acute situation their Rov should be consulted.

Best wishes
