COVID-19 Testing


First Response Urgent Care is offering walk-in COVID-19 testing  

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person, predominantly through respiratory droplets
produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or
noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when
people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

Swab Testing for COVID-19
Diagnostic tests check samples from your respiratory system (such as swabs of the inside of the
nose) to tell you if you currently have an infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you should take protective steps and possible
    treatment. Our healthcare providers can guide you

  • If you test negative for COVID-19, you probably were not infected at the time your
    sample was collected, but remain at risk for infection in future if you come in contact
    with someone carrying virus.


Serological Testing (Antibody) for COVID-19:

Antibody blood tests also called serologic tests, check your blood by looking for antibodies,
which show if you had a previous infection with the virus. Antibodies are proteins that help fight
off infections.

If you test positive:

  • A positive test result shows you have antibodies that likely resulted from an
    infection with SARS-CoV-2, or possibly a related coronavirus.
  • If you have no symptoms, you likely do not have an active infection and no
    additional follow-up is needed.
  • It’s possible you might test positive for antibodies and you might not have or have
    ever had symptoms of COVID-19. This is known as having an asymptomatic
    infection, or an infection without symptoms.


If you test negative:

  • If you test negative for COVID-19 antibodies, you probably did not have a
    previous infection that has gotten better. However, you could have a current
    infection. It’s possible you could still get sick if you have been exposed to the
    virus recently, since antibodies don’t show up for 1 to 3 weeks after infection.
    This means you could still spread the virus.
  • Some people may take even longer to develop antibodies, and some people may
    not develop antibodies.
