What are the COVID-19 Testing Types Available?

Rapid RT-PCR Test

The quickest test for determining whether the novel coronavirus is present is the Rapid COVID-19 test (COVID-19). Similar to a routine diagnostic test, rapid COVID testing uses a swab. The presence or absence of a viral infection is then determined by laboratory analysis of a swab.

Rapid tests are highly accurate and can return patient results on the same day as the test. Our care team is able to swab and receive results on the same day, in contrast to conventional swab tests. The results of a typical test will probably not be available for several days. Rapid testing enables our care team to provide patients with results the same day the test is finished.

Rapid Antigen Test

All of our clinics at Instant Urgent Care provide Rapid Antigen COVID-19 testing for patients who require an immediate diagnosis for medical clearance or return to work. Patients who need to stay in their communities for work and personal reasons typically benefit from same-day urgent care rapid test, with an assurance to provide results on the same day.

However, if patients are traveling to another state or country by plane, they might need to get a particular RT-PCR test. Contact us for more information.

faq
1. Does Urgent Care Do COVID Testing?

Yes, many urgent care centers offer COVID-19 testing, including both PCR and rapid tests. It’s good to call ahead to confirm availability and any specific requirements.

2. When should I take a rapid COVID-19 test?

Rapid COVID-19 tests are useful for quickly checking if you have COVID-19, especially if you have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive. It’s most useful to take a test as soon as symptoms appear or after exposure.

3. How accurate are COVID-19 rapid tests?

The accuracy of COVID-19 rapid tests can vary depending on the specific test used. Generally, they may have slightly lower sensitivity than PCR tests, but they can still be quite accurate, especially when taken at the right time.

4. Can a Rapid Test detect early COVID-19?

Rapid tests can detect COVID-19 in the early stages, but their accuracy increases as the viral load in your body increases. They are more reliable a few days after exposure or when symptoms develop.

5. Where can I get COVID-19 test results on the same day?

You can often get same-day COVID-19 test results from various sources, including urgent care centers, some pharmacies, and certain testing sites. However, availability may vary depending on your location and the type of test used. It’s suggested to inquire locally for specific options.
