Fast Facts About Rapid PCR Testing for COVID-19
The “gold standard” of COVID-19 diagnostics, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests deliver highly accurate results with little need for re-testing. This method involves a nasal swab and screens for the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2 (the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, a respiratory illness). During the test, a long, thin cotton swab is gently inserted into the patient’s nostril to collect a mucus sample. The sample is then evaluated in our on-site clinical lab, and results are made available the same or next day.
So, when is the best time to receive rapid PCR testing for COVID-19? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends testing three to five days after a patient believes they were exposed to the virus. If you are already experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19—which can include fever, chills, shortness of breath, and muscle aches—it’s time to get tested.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
