Swimming is requiring everyone to present verifiable negative
COVID-19 test results at registration prior to receiving a
credential. A rapid antigen test is fine as are some rapid
at-home tests, but it must be one that provides verifiable results
(a photo of an at-home test card will not suffice).
In addition to local pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS, etc.), the
following at-home tests are CDC approved and are
“proctored” by a live person thru an app and a
certificate is emailed within 15 minutes after the test. Cost
is $69 but includes two tests, so people can share for $35 each
(please be aware that USA Swimming will not be reimbursing for test
These test are quick, simple and provide verifiable results.
