Rapid Flu Test After Exposure But Prior to Any Symptoms

Dear all,

Was on a vacation from Friday through yesterday with my family. One of the family members began to develop flu symptoms yesterday and continues today and family doctor was confident enough that its the flu to start the individual on TamiFlu.

I am experiencing no symptoms but I have had several bad flus in recently years. My question is whether a rapid flu test administered before the onset of symptoms will be accurate or if I have to wait to see if symptoms will develop.

Many thanks.
