Symptoms Of Covid-19:

There are a wide range of symptoms associated with COVID-19, with cases ranging from asymptomatic or mild to severe. The virus can be transmitted through direct contact with a person who has been exposed and infected with COVID-19 or through Community Spread, which is when a patient is unsure of where they came into contact with the virus. Because the virus is so widespread, patients often do not know when they were initially exposed. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include:

  • High fever (over 102 F) that will not break or consistent chills
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Dry, persistent cough
  • Sudden and recent loss of smell and/or taste
  • Chest and nasal congestion
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache and full body ache
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea

How Is The Covid-19 Test Performed?

The COVID-19 rapid test is performed by taking a gentle swab of the lower nasal cavity. The swab is inserted through your nostril and only takes a few moments to complete. The test is painless to the patient, and the staff member taking the sample will be fully protected in a gown, gloves, mask and face shield.

Once the test is completed, the sample is brought to our on-site lab, where it is placed into a specialized machine that only performs the COVID-19 rapid test.

The sample is combined with a chemical mixture that breaks down the virus and exposes its genetic material, which is replicated against targeted molecules to detect the active virus. We will be able to provide you with results the same day. Masks are required when you visit AFC Urgent Care Southcenter for testing.

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.
