COVID-19: Rapid Antigen Testing and PCR Testing

All CareSpot and MedPost locations now offer two types of COVID-19 testing: Rapid Antigen Testing and PCR Testing, while supplies last.

When you come to CareSpot or MedPost for COVID-19 testing, a provider will evaluate your symptoms and possible exposure to COVID-19. Based on that evaluation, they will determine whether you should receive a rapid test or a PCR test.

Rapid (Antigen) Testing: These tests use a nasal swab to detect the presence of a viral antigen, which implies that a person has a viral infection. Results from these tests are generally available in one hour or less.

Rapid antigen tests do not definitively rule out active COVID-19 illness. If your rapid test shows a negative result but you have COVID-19 symptoms, your provider may recommend a PCR test.

PCR Testing: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests use a nasal swab that is then sent out to a laboratory. Processing times for these tests vary but results are generally available within two days. These types of test are widely considered to be the most accurate on the market.

 

Rapid COVID testing: Results and Pricing

Results from these tests are generally available in one hour or less. You can wait at our location while your test is being processed, then discuss it with your provider. Rapid COVID tests are available while supplies last.
