COVID-19 is a virus that has spread worldwide, with over 53,000 cases reported in the state of Connecticut as of September 9th. The novel coronavirus is an upper respiratory infection that was initially detected in late 2019 that can be detected through a swab test. AFC Urgent Care Torrington offers COVID-19 diagnostic swab testing seven days a week for walk-in patients.
What happens during a COVID-19 test?
The COVID-19 diagnostic swab test is performed by taking a swab of the nasal cavity. The swab is done gently and painlessly, with minimal discomfort to the patient. The test takes only a few moments to perform. When visiting AFC Urgent Care Torrington for testing, please wear a mask and only lower it when asked by your physician. Our staff will be wearing full PPE, including masks, gloves, gowns and face shields for our protection. Depending on the capacity of Enzo Lab, our partner lab, results from COVID-19 testing may take up to 3-5 business or more if there are any unforeseen circumstances.
Disclaimer: Please check with your insurance provider as some insurers may require a copayment for testing.
