COVID-19 Diagnostic Swab Testing

COVID-19 Diagnostic Swab Testing

AFC Urgent Care New Bedford is performing COVID-19 diagnostic swab testing on asymptomatic and symptomatic patients seven days a week. COVID-19 is a relatively new virus that affects the upper respiratory system, with a range of symptoms. The most effective way of diagnosing an active case of COVID-19 is by performing a swab of the lower nasal cavity. AFC Urgent Care New Bedford offers the rapid swab test and can provide you with your results the same day as your test. No appointments are required for COVID-19 diagnostic testing. 

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

COVID-19 symptoms may vary from case to case. Some patients exhibit severe symptoms, while others feel minor discomfort similar to a cold and others still are entirely asymptomatic. Because the virus is transmitted through direct contact with an infected person or surface and through community spread, it is important to continue observing local and state health and safety regulations. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include:

  • Dry, constant cough
  • High fever of over 102 F
  • Shortness of breath
  • Recent loss of smell and/or taste
  • Full body aches and headaches
  • Chest congestion

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

    We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

  • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

    We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

  • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

    That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
