Rapid PCR Testing for COVID-19
What to Expect from a Rapid PCR COVID Test
Here at Lifeline Urgent Care, we’re committed to offering our patients the very best of everything—from a comfortable reception area to top-notch medical treatment and everything in between. That’s why we provide rapid PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests for COVID-19. The “gold standard” of coronavirus screening, PCR testing can detect the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for the respiratory disease known as COVID-19.
What Does a Rapid PCR Test Involve?
A rapid PCR test at Lifeline Urgent Care involves a brief nasal swab. This simple test should not hurt, although it may be slightly uncomfortable for a few seconds. The collected sample is promptly evaluated in our onsite clinical lab and results are provided on the same or following day. This way, you can quickly take the appropriate steps to protect your health and the well-being of those around you.
Maybe you’re not sure if you need a COVID-19 test. If this is the case, Lifeline Urgent Care has you covered! We offer convenient telemedicine services that will allow you to consult with our professionals and find answers to your health questions from the comfort and safety of home.
