Covid-19 Q&A

When might I need COVID-19 testing?

There are a few reasons you might need COVID-19 testing, including:

COVID-19 symptoms

If you have new symptoms of COVID-19, it’s smart to test as soon as possible. Some of the most common symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, breathing problems, sinus issues, fever, and chills, but there are many other possible symptoms. 

Close contact

If you were close to someone who has or potentially has COVID-19, wait at least five days and then visit Urgent CareX for testing. 


COVID-19 testing is required for some types of travel, such as cruises. You’ll need to test both before and after your trip. 


There are other situations that call for COVID-19 testing, including routine screenings at school, work, and other circumstances, too.

What is rapid COVID-19 testing?

Rapid COVID-19 testing involves a quick swab of your nasal passages. If you have COVID-19, the nasal sample contains certain proteins. But, those proteins don’t appear immediately after infection, which is why you should wait at least five days to test after suspected exposure. 


Rapid COVID-19 testing gives you a quick answer, taking just 15 minutes in the Urgent CareX office. 

What is PCR testing for COVID-19?


Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests detect a virus if you’re currently infected. The highly accurate test checks for the specific genetic material of the virus that causes COVID-19. A PCR test can be either a nasal swab or a saliva test. 


Most people with PCR testing are planning a trip and need this type of test to prove they don’t have COVID-19. Urgent CareX offers 24-hour PCR testing.

What is COVID-19 antibody testing?


Antibody testing checks a small blood sample to look for proteins your body uses to fight sickness. This type of testing can show you if you had COVID-19 in the past but doesn’t tell you if you have a current infection.
