At ContinuEM, we offer both nasal swab and rapid PCR tests with an on-site lab for quick results. Both tests are FDA-approved and can give you accurate results if you suspect you might have COVID-19.
The nasal swab test is recommended and can provide highly accurate results within 1-2 days. For this test, we will use a nasal swab to collect a sample from your nose. The depth of the swab is similar to an at-home COVID test and is not as deep as the nasopharyngeal tests.
If you need results sooner, we can perform a rapid PCR test. The rapid RT-PCR test is similar to a nasal swab test, but we’ll have results within 30 minutes.
Out-of-pocket cost for urgent care COVID-19 testing is based on your specific insurance coverage and plan. If cost is a concern, please contact our office to confirm that we are in-network for your insurance provider. You can also contact your insurance provider before visiting to be sure of total costs, including copays and other fees.
ContinuEM offers COVID-19 testing for upcoming travel. Many destinations require a negative COVID-19 test before departure. A rapid COVID-19 test is ideal before traveling, giving you results within minutes. Do keep in mind that some destinations may require a PCR test, which we also offer. Patients are responsible for understanding the testing requirements for their destination.
If your symptoms are severe, you should seek emergency care immediately. If your symptoms are mild to moderate, speak with one of our doctors to determine the best course of action. Book a COVID-19 Appointment at ContinuEM or schedule a Virtual Visit.
