COVID-19 FAQ

AFC Urgent Care Marlborough provides rapid diagnostic testing and antibody testing to all patients in Marlborough, and other surrounding MA areas. 

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, is an illness that is easily spread from person to person in close contact. It is diagnosed through laboratory testing. AFC Urgent Care Marlborough offers testing for active COVID cases through rapid diagnostic testing

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms of COVID can appear within 2-14 days after exposure. Patients may experience mild to severe symptoms. Signs include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion

Watch for emergency signs, such as trouble breathing, pressure in the chest, and inability to wake or stay awake. Visit the emergency room if you begin to experience these symptoms. Call AFC Urgent Care Marlborough or your primary care doctor for other questions or concerns. 

How can you avoid catching COVID?

COVID-19 is extremely contagious. It is spread from person to person through respiratory droplets from a cough or sneeze. The best way to avoid catching COVID is wearing a mask when around others not in your household, maintaining a six-foot distance from others, and washing your hands frequently. 

What testing options are available at AFC Urgent Care Marlborough?

AFC Marlborough offers rapid testing by appointment and on a walk-in basis.   Antibody testing is available for walk-in patients.

Rapid Diagnostic Testing is available for all patients on a walk-in basis. If applicable, patients can schedule an appointment instead. Rapid tests involve collecting a sample from the patient’s nasal cavity using a swab. The sample is analyzed in our lab, and results are available within 15 minutes. 

Antibody Testing is available for all patients who are not experiencing an active case of COVID. This test requires patients to be asymptomatic for at least 14 days. Through bloodwork, it tests for antibodies used to fight against COVID-19. Results are available within a few days. 

Visit AFC Urgent Care Marlborough or give us a call today. We are open seven days a week from 8AM to 8PM.

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
