There are a few different types of COVID-19 tests available for individuals to receive; however, depending on the location you visit, as well as the supply they have in stock at the time of your visit will depend on which tests may be available:
• Serology-based test
Serology-based testing is known as the antibody test. This particular test is often done to tell if the patient has any antibodies from a previous COVID-19 infection.
• Antigen-based test
Antigen-based testing is considered a rapid-based test that provides results in a short time, on average an hour or less.
• Nucleic acid-based test
Nucleic acid-based testing is molecular testing which is known best as PCR testing. This test is one of the first and most widely used forms of COVID-19 testing, it tests the genetic material found in the body that is known as nucleic acids.
There are a few different ways that samples are collected to be tested for COVID-19, by either a healthcare professional or through a simple self-collection test. A few different sample ways include:
• Nose swab
• Saliva swab
• Throat swab
• Mouth swab
• Blood draw
We provide a walk-in and appointment-based service. If a COVID-19 Drive-Thru test is preferred, and you want a more accurate time frame of when to be at our clinic, as well as how long you will be waiting, this is the method to choose.
To book an appointment for a COVID-19 Drive-Thru rapid test, you will need to follow these steps:
1. Schedule an appointment through the website’s appointment scheduler, and complete all of the online paperwork.
2. Wear a mask to the facility, bring your medical insurance information with you so we can identify you upon signing in.
3. You will have a provider or medical assistant administer the COVID-19 rapid test.
4. Results from the COVID-19 rapid test will be available in about 30-60 minutes or less, depending on how busy the facility is at the time of your appointment.
If you require a printed copy of your results, you can wait on-site until the results have come in, and we will provide you with a paper copy. If a verbal result or text is best, we will let you know your test results through the HIPAA compliant portal.
Drive-thru COVID-19 testing works by providing patients their results faster and more effectively without spreading or contracting COVID-19 while sitting in a waiting room. COVID-19 is still prevalent and spreading, and with businesses re-opening and seeing more and more people getting back to what is their normal lives, COVID-19 variants are being identified sooner and morphing faster than ever. This is why it is important to continuously identify positive cases of COVID-19 cases when someone is starting to show symptoms or has been identified as close contact with someone who tested positive, so they can take the appropriate measures to stop the spread.
If you begin showing any of these COVID-19 related symptoms, book your drive-thru appointment for a COVID-19 test:
• Sore throat
• Difficulty breathing
• Shortness of breath
• Extreme fatigue
• Loss of smell
• Loss of taste
• Muscle pain
• Stomach pain
• Fever of 100oF or higher
While you may not have symptoms of COVID-19, you can still test positive, particularly if you are considered close contact with an identified positive case of COVID-19. At the time you were near the COVID-19 positive individual, you may have had the virus transmitted to you without the individual developing symptoms or yourself. Drive-thru COVID-19 testing locations are an excellent way to get tested without being exposed to extra risks from others. These appointments only take a matter of minutes to register for, as well as the test itself. Our COVID-19 rapid test results are often completed in an hour or sooner, providing you the information you need faster to continue on with your day.
