We also observed that negative test results were reported more than positive results. In 2021, we evaluated whether mass distribution of over-the-counter tests can reduce transmission of the virus by comparing new cases in Washtenaw County, Michigan, which has a population of 370,000. Two communities that make up 140,000 of the total county population used more rapid tests and prevented an average of 40 cases of COVID-19 per day during the delta surge. Our findings suggest that rapid antigen tests are a critical public health tool that can help reduce the spread of disease during a surge.
