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.
