Can I tell which COVID-19 variant I have?

Viral tests are used to determine if a person has COVID-19 and are not designed to tell you what variant is causing the infection. Detecting the Delta variant, or other variants, requires a special type of testing called genomic sequencing. Due to the volume of COVID-19 cases, sequencing is not performed on all viral samples. Tracking variants allows us to understand how common the new strains are in our communities, not to have a real-time number of cases that are tied to each strain.
