What Does Coronavirus Testing Involve?
Coronavirus testing screens for an active COVID-19 infection. Specifically, it is a viral test that is performed to detect SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes COVID-19. Here’s a brief overview of what the test entails:
- A very thin, 6-inch-long swab is gently inserted into a nostril until it reaches the nasopharynx, an air-filled cavity located behind the nose in the middle of the face.
- The swab remains in the nostril for about 10 seconds to collect enough nasopharyngeal secretions for testing.
- The process is repeated in the other nostril.
The results of coronavirus testing performed at Affinity Urgent Care are usually available within 24 hours, allowing you to take more control of your health and find peace of mind during this unique time.
