Rapid COVID-19 Testing

A Rapid COVID-19 test is the fastest test for detecting the presence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Rapid COVID testing uses a swab like a standard diagnostic test. A swab is then analyzed in a lab to determine a positive or negative viral infection. 

Rapid tests can bring back patient results on the same day of testing and with high levels of accuracy. Unlike traditional swab tests, our providers are able to swab and get results back on the same day. A standard test is likely to take a few days to finalize results.  Rapid testing allows our providers to get results back to patients within 15 to 20 minutes after testing is completed.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Learn more about Antibody Testing

At Instant Urgent Care, our provider team continues to improve your needs for COVID-19 testing and preventive care services that keep you safe during the pandemic. In addition to standard COVID-19 testing, our team can also provide antibody testing that helps detect a patient’s potential immunity. Antibody testing is useful for asymptomatic patients to see if they had COVID-19 and developed a natural immunity to the virus. Additionally, antibody testing is useful for patients that are almost ready to return to work. Simply book a pre-screening with a provider to see if you have any risk of a potential infection. 


Telemedicine is the virtual delivery of preventive and primary care for patients. A virtual visit via telemedicine allows a patient to visit with their doctor on a computer or smart device at an available time. Make sure to ask your insurance provider if you plan covers telemedicine visits 

At Instant Urgent Care, our telemedicine visits help address a wide range of primary care, urgent care, and pediatric healthcare needs. If you need to schedule a visit today, please use the online scheduling tool to book today!

FAQs About Rapid COVID Testing at Instant Urgent Care:

Are you offering testing for coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Yes, we are currently offering COVID-19 testing for both antibody testing and rapid testing. 

What is the difference between rapid testing and antibody testing? 

COVID-19 rapid testing detects an active infection of the virus. When patients come in the get either a positive or negative test result. The result determines if the virus is active in your body or if there is no detection of it at all. 

COVID-19 antibody testing detects the presence of antibodies from a previous COVID infection that determines if a patient has immunity to a virus. Many patients do not need an antibody test right away and would benefit from a rapid test.
