What You Should Know

 Testing in The US

 

What kind of COVID-19 is available at Urgent Care Center of Arlington? Is it reliable?

We are providing a COVID-19 rapid antigen test which is made by Quidel and run on the Sofia-2 instrument. This test detects a protein that is located on the virus. Data suggests that this test give results that are as reliable as the PCR testing.

Testing too early after exposure can increase the risk of false negatives with any test. If you have been exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19, we recommend waiting at least 5 days after exposure before being tested to avoid false negatives. You need to isolate yourself until you can be tested.

A positive result on the antigen test is very accurate. This test looks for specific protein that is only found on the SARS-COV virus.

No test is perfect, and things are evolving rapidly in these extraordinary times. More recent data on the Quidel/Sofia rapid antigen test suggests that the results are almost as accurate as the PCR tests.

 

How quickly will I receive my COVID-19 test results?

The rapid results are available in 1 to 2 hours.
