This coronavirus shares many symptoms of the flu, a common cold, or a regular upper respiratory infection. According to the CDC, current COVID-19 symptoms include:

This coronavirus, however, can develop severe complications, including:
Generally, symptoms begin to appear within two to fourteen days. There are some indications that people infected with COVID-19 do not display any signs, but still may be very contagious.
It is currently believed that the virus is transmitted via droplets when people coughs or breathes. These droplets fly through the air to infect others. If someone coughs into their hand, it can then be left on surfaces they touch. Facemasks help contain any droplets someone may breathe out. This is especially important if they are infected but are unaware of it because they are not showing symptoms.
Community infections are active in the Willow Grove area, but there are still other infections out there that could be causing your symptoms. For example, the flu and upper respiratory infections have symptoms that are similar to COVID-19. The main symptoms we see in many coronavirus cases include:
If you have symptoms above, do not visit AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove without first calling. Speak with our staff about your symptoms, concerns, and if you are at risk for COVID-19.

Other coronaviruses can affect humans. Two recent outbreaks of coronaviruses include SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.) A coronavirus caused both of these outbreaks. SARS is thought to be more closely related to COVID-19 than it is to MERS. SARS also first originated in Asia, while MERS was first seen in Saudi Arabia.
2019-nCov was initially assigned to this virus due to changes in how new infections are named. “2019" represented the year it was first detected, and “nCov" stood for “Novel Coronavirus." “Novel" is used because it looks like no other virus ever seen before. World Health Organization officials changed the way infections are named to avoid misinformation or fear. They no longer name things like Lyme Disease, named after a town, or Legionnaires Disease, named after the convention when it first infected people. The name COVID-19 now identifies this coronavirus. This name denotes the year it was detected (2019) and its status as a new coronavirus. Another name some scientists use to describe this virus is SARS-CoV-2 or “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2."

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.
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.
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.
