COVID-19 has quickly spread worldwide since its initial detection in late 2019. COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, is an upper respiratory infection and has been detected in over 250,000 cases in the state of New Jersey. Due to how recently the virus was discovered, research is currently underway to determine a vaccination as well as long-term effects from the virus. If you are exhibiting symptoms, you may be eligible for COVID-19 diagnostic testing at AFC Urgent Care North Bergen.
Symptoms of COVID
Symptoms vary from case-to-case and can range from mild to severe. Many patients have been asymptomatic, so its important to wear a mask when around others and maintain a distance of 6 feet. Symptoms can develop within 2-14 days of initial exposure to the virus. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include:
Shortness of breath and congestion
Loss of taste and/or smell
How Diagnostic Testing Works
Diagnostic testing is performed on a walk-in basis. When you come to our center, we ask that you wear a mask and call from your vehicle so we can direct you to the correct entrance for testing. A nasal swab will be taken of the lower nasal cavity and tested, with results available within a few days.

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.
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 your local clinic for the details.
