I had to get tested for the flu and it took 5 days to get my results back...Testing is backed up where I am because of all of the cases.

The rapid test takes only 10mins  but can only differentiate a positive test A from a positive test type B and vice versa -- not say conclusively a + type A is Swine but as I understand, in lack of a community outbreak early in the reg flu season, it's assumed to be the H1N1 variety.  It takes days to get results from the other type but by the time you wait it is too long to take Tamiflu
