COVID-19 Rapid Testing in Vernon, CT

COVID-19 Rapid Testing in Vernon, CT

If you have recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms of the virus, you can visit AFC Urgent Care Vernon for rapid diagnostic testing with same-day results, seven days a week. No appointment is needed

What can I do to prepare for the COVID-19 rapid test?

Make sure you are wearing a mask or protective face covering when visiting AFC Urgent Care Vernon, only lowering it when asked to collect the swab sample. 

How can I prepare for the COVID-19 rapid test?

You are required to wear a mask to AFC Urgent Care Vernon for testing, lowering it only when asked for the actual swab test. The test is performed by using a gentle swab to collect a sample from your upper nasal cavity. The test is painless and takes only a few moments to complete. 

What does the rapid test do?

The rapid test is a more efficient method of diagnosing the active COVID-19 virus, with results the same day rather than waiting up to three days for standard NAAT/PCR testing results. After the sample is collected, it is brought to a machine that is specifically designed to perform the COVID-19 test. The sample is mixed with specific chemicals that can expose the genetic material of the virus and detect the presence of COVID-19. The results will be printed and a member of our staff will contact you with your results via a phone call or email. If you have recently been exposed to COVID-19, wait between 5-7 days for testing in order to receive an accurate result. 

What is the benefit of the rapid test?

The rapid test is able to provide results the same day as a patient is tested, which gives patients quicker notice to self-isolate and inform people they were in close proximity to in recent days to get tested. If you need to self-isolate due to a positive test result, prepare to be in your home for at least fourteen days until you are asymptomatic or no longer contagious. If you have a negative result, you should continue to follow your local health recommendations: social distancing, washing your hands frequently and wearing a mask in public places.

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.
