*Emergency Warning Signs* If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the following symptoms, please seek immediate medical care:
Rapid Antigen Test
Rapid antigen test results are usually available in as little as 15 minutes. The rapid COVID-19 test is most accurate in patients who are currently experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
The PCR test detects traces of the coronavirus within days of infection, even in those with no symptoms. Turnaround time is longer, generally in the 2-3 day range but results can be available in as little as 24 hours. This test is very accurate in determining infection status.
