I am taking antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. Is it OK to be tested for COVID-19 or will the antibiotics interfere with the test result?


The antibiotics should not affect the test for COVID-19 as far as current knowledge allows! The COVID-19 test looks for particles of a virus whereas the antibiotics are killing the bacterial infection which is quite different. You can read more about COVID-19 testing here.
