The 2019 novel coronavirus, abbreviated as COVID-19, is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing cold or flu-like symptoms.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 is spreading through “community spread." Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including individuals who are not sure how they were infected. The most likely method of human-to-human transmission is through tiny droplets spread by coughing and sneezing.
Possibly, the risk assessment may change daily as this is a rapidly evolving situation. For the latest updates, visit the CDC’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 website.
Per the CDC, fever, cough, and shortness of breath are the most common symptoms of COVID-19 and may appear 2-14 days after exposure. (Incubation period is based on what has previously been seen as the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses)
Please stay at home if you believe you are sick. If you need to see a doctor, please call your local AFC Urgent Care and we will work with you and your state’s public health department to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. Per the CDC, if you suspect you may have COVID-19, you should not use public transportation or ride sharing services.
We are regularly following updates on COVID-19 from the CDC and communicating information to all of our providers and clinic staff as the CDC’s reporting and recommendations evolve.
All AFC Urgent Care clinics are participating in pandemic drills so that our staff can ensure quality care is provided to any patients with potential Coronavirus exposure while keeping all clinic staff and other patients safe.
At AFC Urgent Care, our primary focus has always been our patients. We want to make sure you have all the information you need to best take care of yourself and your loved ones. Click here for instructions from the CDC on what to do if you are sick.
Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose. (CDC Mask guidelines)
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.
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.
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.
