In order to maintain the highest level of healthcare while serving the great community of Suffolk, VA and surrounding areas, AFC Urgent Care Suffolk is pleased to offer COVID-19 testing. If you feel ill or suspect that you have been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19, or if you need clearance for work, travel or school, you may come to AFC Urgent Care in Suffolk for a test. National testing supplies are currently at an all-time shortage, but we will accommodate patients with no pre-screening requirements, as supplies last.
We STRONGLY encourage you to make an appointment by visiting https://www.clockwisemd.com/hospitals/3838/appointments/new. This helps us to better manage patient flow and supplies. If you do not have an appointment, we will attempt to accommodate you. However, patients with an appointment are guaranteed to be seen.

Yes, we are now offering Rapid Testing.
Rapid Testing is a great option for patients who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, as well as patients who plan to travel, college students returning to campus and employees who require a negative test result to return to work.
The test takes as little as 15 minutes to process, however on high volume days, please allow up to 24 hours for us to provide you with your results.
Appointments are not required, but highly encouraged
While policies and procedures may change, we are happy to announce that most insurance providers are currently covering the cost of your test, to some extent. Because the rapid test coverage changes frequently, please contact your insurance for coverage beforehand.
We accept all major insurance plans, along with Medicare and Medicaid.
