Many Australians are now depending on the accuracy of Rapid Antigen Tests  to return to their workplaces. Experts  caution against the over-reliance on RATs due to accuracy issues. With the easing of government restrictions, and the potential inaccuracy of incorrectly applied RATs, Australians who haven't already should get their booster jab.  Covid-19 symptoms should always overrule a positive RAT result, and symptomatic people should still quarantine rather than go back to their workplace.
