AFC Urgent Care in St. Petersburg, Florida is now offering COVID-19 testing. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that affects the respiratory system. By providing accessible testing for patients across St. Petersburg, ACF Urgent Care aims to improve the safety of Florida communities.
COVID-19 Testing: What To Expect
Diagnostic and antibody testing are available for COVID-19. Both testing procedures are safe and quick to complete.
The diagnostic test for COVID-19 is used to detect an active COVID-19 infection. During your COVID-19 diagnostic test, we’ll take a nasal swab, saliva sample, or oral swab. This sample is then sent to a lab for evaluation. You’ll receive your results within a few days of taking the test.
COVID-19 antibody testing can be used to detect a previous COVID-19 infection. Antibody testing for COVID-19 requires a blood sample, which we’ll send to a lab for evaluation. Note that a positive result for a COVID-19 antibody hasn’t been proven to provide immunity against the virus.
Prevent The Spread With COVID-19 Testing
COVID-19 testing can help reduce the spread of this highly contagious virus. By obtaining a positive result from a diagnostic test, patients can stay at home and avoid exposing others to the disease.
