COVID-19 is an upper respiratory infection that has quickly spread worldwide since its initial detection in late 2019, with over 47,000 cases reported in Connecticut as of July 2020. AFC Urgent Care Norwalk provides testing both at our location and mobile testing for local businesses who are having their employees screened prior to their return to the workplace or have a residential population at their business.
How does AFC Urgent Care Norwalk perform COVID-19 diagnostic testing?
We perform COVID-19 diagnostic testing by taking a gentle swab of the lower nasal cavity, taking only a few moments and at no pain to the patient. We typically have a turnaround within 3-5 business days for results depending on lab capacity or any unforeseen circumstances.
COVID-19 Testing for Employees & Local Businesses
Our staff and occupational health department works with local businesses across Norwalk and the surrounding communities to provide COVID-19 NAAT/PCR testing and keep employees safe. Some of the businesses we work with include nursing homes, assisted living facilities, offices and office parks, warehouses and retail locations. Prior to testing, our team will set up a tent with necessary equipment for testing, including testing kits and PPE gear for all who are performing the tests. Social distancing and masks will be required for all in attendance. Results for business testing will be available in 3 business days depending on the number of tests ordered, lab capacity or any unforeseen circumstances.
