What is a Rapid COVID-19 Test?
A rapid COVID-19 test, also referred to as a rapid antigen test, screens for specific proteins related to SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for the respiratory illness known as COVID-19. (PCR tests, on the other hand, screen for the virus’s genetic material.) Testing usually involves a nasal or nasopharyngeal swab, which is promptly evaluated in our onsite clinical lab. Results of a rapid COVID-19 test are typically available within 24 hours.
We also encourage people to take advantage of our telemedicine services, which allow patients to consult with our clinicians via a smartphone, computer, or tablet. Our team offers this service to patients with many common health concerns, including potential COVID-19 symptoms. Click here to learn more about telemedicine.
