Nasal swab test to to see if a person has a current COVID-19 infection. Test results available in 15 minutes. This type of test may be particularly useful if a person has exposure to someone who is suspected to be COVID-19 positive. Additionally, the test may be used for admission to certain states and cities who are restricting travel for citizens from Texas (check with officials at your destination location to confirm). If you are testing after an exposure to an individual who is COVID-19 positive that you've had close contact with, it is best practice to wait 2-5 days prior to testing. The test being offered is the BD Veritor System for Rapid Detection of SARS CoV-2, which is a type of test called an antigen test. Antigen tests are designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 in nasal swabs. The United States FDA has made this test available under an emergency access mechanism called an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). The test is $98 and available by appointment only. Available testing times are listed within the booking website. Individuals should remain in their vehicle and a Pharmacist or Nurse in personal protective equipment will come to your vehicle to collect the sample. Patient will be called with their results within 90 minutes of their testing time.
