Pre event testing

Hello. Anyone has had their 10 month old child go through pre event testing? It is for an important event for my family and I would love to bring along my child. However I want to know if it will be easy as digging her nose or will the test kit be inserted a little more deeply in the nose? Will the baby cry like going through the pain of an injection? Thanks in advance

Hey Mama, Pre event testing will use the ART test which is different from the usual PCR test when you go to a GP with flu symptoms. The ART test doesn’t go as deep as the PCR test and is not as uncomfortable. It only goes 2cm into the nostril. My LO will be going through it to attend a family member’s wedding next month. 😊
