COVID-19 Testing

Our Professionals offer three types of Covid tests that provide quick and accurate results.​The tests are the PCR, Rapid or Antigen covid test and the Antibody Covid test. You can choose from the following tests if you have any symptoms of the virus.

The PCR Test is fully covered by your health insurance. You’ll receive results within 48 hours. The cost for the PCR covid test without insurance is $160.

We understand that people have busy lives, which is why we offer the rapid test. A quick swab in your nose will yield results in about 15 minutes. There is a $75 charge for a rapid test, with the rest of the bill being sent to your health insurance company.

Lastly, we offer the covid antibody test. This test requires a blood draw. You can expect results in no more than 48 hours. The antibody test is covered fully by insurance.

With more and more people becoming vaccinated, you no longer have to get tested in your car. We complete all visits and testing inside the urgent care. We do require an evaluation by a provider for all covid testing to ensure all goes well, and we’ll brief you before you leave.

Our team encourages patients coming in for a covid 19 testing to pre-book appointment on our website. Not only does this save you time waiting for your test, but it will also minimize exposure to the illness itself.

Covid FAQs

What are the signs and symptoms of covid?

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

What is the quarantine time period after covid infection?

People with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), follow that by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter.

How long is one contagious once infected with covid?

Available data suggest that patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 remain infectious no longer than 10 days after symptom onset.

Is there treatment for covid?

The FDA has authorized certain antiviral medications and monoclonal antibodies to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in people who are more likely to get very sick.

  • Antiviral treatments target specific parts of the virus to stop it from multiplying in the body, helping to prevent severe illness and death.
  • Monoclonal antibodies help the immune system recognize and respond more effectively to the virus.

Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home. You can treat symptoms with over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), to help you feel better.

Is the covid vaccine effective?

Vaccines reduce the risk of COVID-19, including the risk of severe illness and death among people who are fully vaccinated. In addition to data from clinical trials, evidence from real-world vaccine effectiveness studies show that COVID-19 vaccines help protect against COVID-19 infections, with or without symptoms (asymptomatic infections). Vaccine effectiveness against hospitalizations has remained relatively high over time, although it tends to be slightly lower for older adults and for people with weakened immune systems.

When can you get the covid vaccine after covid infection?

After testing positive for COVID-19, you will need to postpone getting vaccinated until your symptoms have resolved and you've met the criteria for discontinuing isolation. If you received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you will need to wait 90 days before getting the vaccine. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19. You may consider delaying your vaccine by 3 months from when your symptoms started or, if you had no symptoms, when you received a positive test.

Can you be infected with covid multiple times?

Reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 means a person was infected, recovered, and then later became infected again. After recovering from COVID-19, most individuals will have some protection from repeat infections. However, reinfections do occur after COVID-19.

Viruses are constantly changing, including the virus that causes COVID-19. These changes can lead to the emergence of variants (new strains of the virus) that can increase the risk of reinfection. COVID-19 vaccines continue to be highly effective in protecting against severe illness. Vaccines are recommended for all people 5 years or older, including people who have been infected before.
