The project ‘Material Culture of the COVID-19 pandemic’ aims to document various tangible manifestations of the pandemic. This included the documentation of discarded face masks encountered on the streets of Albury[12,13] and their environmental implications,[14] the assessment of the nature[15] and frequency of types of fitted face masks worn,[5,16,17] as well as the collection of discarded fabric face masks for the Albury LibraryMuseum.
[18] The project also covered the photographic documentation of examples of COVID-19 ephemera, such as social distancing signs and hand sanitising stations, [19] the documentation of digital ephemera related to contact tracing, [20] the documentation of ephemeral structures such as testing stations for COVID-19[21] as well as ephemeral online services related to information on CoVID-19.[22] This document will describe a number of rapid antigen tests (RATs) that had been developed and sold over the counter for the detection of SARS-Cov-2 antigens in a person’s saliva or nasal mucus.
