If you need to be tested for travel, to see a high-risk family member, or to return to school or work, this is a great option. Please note, for flight requirements please contact your airline prior to visiting Cure Urgent Care to determine if this test is acceptable for clearance. We are not responsible for refunds if a different test is required. Pre-registration is expected prior to testing.
Anyone that is symptomatic and/or has had a known exposure to COVID-19 should opt for PCR testing.
Patients should consult their insurance provider for the latest COVID testing policies. Note – the Rapid test is available to uninsured patients for $150, due at the time of your visit.
We will notify you of your results via our patient portal within 1-2 hours of testing.
Rapid Antigen Tests are less accurate than a PCR test. Quidel, the manufacturer of our Rapid Antigen Test states that the test can detect 96% of infections within the first 5 days of the infection. Sensitivity of testing is dependent on an individual’s viral load which is a function of time since first infection and the severity of the infection.
If you have a positive test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19. You should follow CDC guidelines for quarantine. If you have any ongoing symptoms, contact your provider or Cure Urgent Care for follow-up treatment.
A negative Rapid Antigen Test result means that proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found in your sample. It is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative). This means that you could possibly still have COVID-19 even though the test is negative. The amount of antigen in a sample may decrease the longer you have symptoms of infection. Specimens collected after you have had symptoms for more than seven days may be more likely to produce a negative result.
What Precautions Should I Take After Receiving My COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test results?
Please Note: Regardless of your results, you should continue to practice the following safety measures as determined by the CDC: social distancing, quarantining, frequent hand washing, and wearing a face mask in public.
