Rapid COVID-19 Testing Overview:

What is COVID-19 Rapid 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.

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.
