What is a PCR COVID-19 Test?

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing is an accurate and reliable detection of the coronavirus. As opposed to rapid testing, PCR results are typically available within 12 to 48 hours prior to sample collection. During the testing process, a healthcare provider will use a swab in the nasal cavity to collect a sample. The swab is then sent to a lab for diagnosis.

A PCR COVID-19 test is the most reliable and accurate test for detecting active infection. Our board-certified medical providers and clinical staff make the entire testing process easy and quick.

COVID-19 Common Symptoms

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms of COVID-19, it’s important to get tested. Many general illnesses share symptoms with the coronavirus infection. This makes it important to get an accurate diagnosis of your condition to receive the proper treatment. Some patients may experience little to no symptoms, while others may have a moderate to severe course of infection.

Some common symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Congestion
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Shortness of breath

Who Should Get the PCR COVID-19 Test?

Our PCR testing is intended for individuals who:

  • are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19;
  • have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19;
  • are returning to work or school and need proof of a negative test result;
  • have been asked to get tested by an employer or public health official; or
  • are traveling and need a negative test result to comply with travel requirements.

It is important to note that a positive PCR test result indicates that you have the virus and are infectious to others. A negative test result does not mean that you are immune to the virus. Regular testing, along with other preventive measures such as mask-wearing and social distancing, are crucial to preventing the spreading of COVID-19 in your community.
