COVID-19 Testing Q & A
What is COVID-19 testing?
COVID-19 testing includes a variety of diagnostic tests that detect or rule out the presence of COVID-19, a contagious flu-like condition that often results in unpleasant and sometimes serious symptoms. Care Fast Urgent Care offers rapid COVID-19 testing, PCR tests, and antibody tests to let you know if you’re currently infected with COVID-19 or have been infected with it in the past.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Common signs and symptoms associated with COVID-19 include:
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- Loss of taste and smell
- Runny nose
Symptoms often appear within 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms range in severity from mild to severe and life-threatening in some cases.
COVID-19 often spreads by contact with an infected person or through shared surfaces or personal care items. Avoid close contact with people who show signs of COVID-19 and practice good personal hygiene. Wash your hands often using antibacterial soap or hand sanitizer when needed.
What should I expect during COVID-19 testing?
COVID-19 testing and antibody testing are two main types of COVID tests, but both are simple and fast. Your provider can swab the upper part of your nostril or the back of your throat to detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus.
Your specialist might complete a blood test to check for the presence of antibodies in your bloodstream. If you have antibodies, it could be because you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccination or you’ve been infected with, and recovered from, COVID-19.
Depending on the type of COVID-19 test you receive, you may get your results right away, later on the same day, or after a few days.
What happens if I test positive for COVID-19?
If you test positive for COVID-19, it’s important to take good care of your health and do the best you can to avoid spreading the virus to other people. Isolate yourself, get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, and drink plenty of liquids. If you have severe COVID-19 symptoms and want relief, talk with the Care Fast Urgent Care team about your COVID-19 treatment options.
