Convenient & Reliable COVID-19 Testing Services Near Spring, TX
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has upended daily life in the U.S. Because COVID-19 is exceptionally contagious, everyone needs to do their part to slow the spread and keep themselves—and others—safe until an effective vaccine is made widely available. Here’s how: wash your hands, practice social distancing, wear a facial covering, and stay home.
Additionally, if you have symptoms such as a persistent cough or mild fever, or if you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you should be tested. If you live in the Spring, Texas, area, you can take advantage of the convenient and reliable COVID-19 testing services available at Medella Urgent Care. We’ve designed our COVID-19 testing protocol with your safety in mind. We also offer off-site COVID-19 testing services for businesses with 20 employees or more.
We Can Test for COVID-19 in Three Ways
Medella Urgent Care offers three common types of COVID-19 testing:
Drive-Up Nasal Swab Testing for an Active COVID-19 Infection
While you remain safely in your vehicle, we’ll use a special swab to collect a sample of nasal secretions from the back of your nose and throat, then send your sample to a certified lab for analysis. We will promptly contact you when we receive your results, typically within a few days.
Rapid On-Site COVID-19 Antigen Testing
In response to the growing need for fast and accurate COVID-19 testing, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted emergency authorization for the use of rapid antigen testing to detect COVID-19. Medella Urgent Care is pleased to offer this nasal swab test. After we collect your sample, we will immediately process it on site using Quidel Corporation’s Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA, which provides COVID-19 testing results within minutes.
COVID-19 Blood Antibody Testing
By testing a sample of your blood for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2—which your immune system would likely produce in response to a COVID-19 exposure—we can determine whether you were infected with COVID-19 in the past.
As Medella Urgent Care responds to our community’s vital need for COVID-19 testing, we want you to know that our clinics near Spring, TX, remain open and available to patients who require urgent care for other non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries as well.
