Read on to learn more about COVID-19 testing services in NY and NJ.
How does one get tested for the coronavirus?
If you or someone you know is having the symptoms commonly associated with a coronavirus infection, then testing may be necessary. The most common symptoms associated with the infection tend to be:
- Dry cough
The above symptoms may be mild or more severe. Also, it’s possible to experience much more serious symptoms like:
- Shortness of breath/difficulty with breathing
- Pain or pressure in the chest
- Loss of movement or speech
For life-threatening symptoms, it’s necessary to call 911. For minor symptoms and to get tested for the coronavirus, please call Chai Urgent Care. After you call our clinic, we’ll provide remote care or book you in for a telemedicine appointment if necessary. This kind of medicine is especially convenient, very affordable, and necessary when there’s a risk of getting sick or making others sick. If you must be tested, we’ll offer testing at our clinic or our clinic’s curbside. Please don’t come see us in-person for a test, as this can put people at risk for infection.
Are all COVID-19 detection kits the same?
There are different detection kits for the coronavirus, and different methods for detection. There’s also the antibody test for the virus, which can check to see if a person previously had the virus. This can help medical professionals track the spread of the virus and may even help them find antibodies to the virus. This test is only for patients who do not currently have symptoms.
There’s also an instant test for the virus, which can check whether a patient currently has the virus, but please understand that this test is limited in supply and for emergency patients only.
The common viral tests can check whether a non-emergency patient has the virus. The most common test is the nasal swab test. If you or a loved one needs to be tested and the situation isn’t an emergency, then this is the test you’ll need, and Chai Urgent Care can provide it. We’re able to offer the test at our clinic or our clinic’s curbside, but please keep reading to learn how to proceed with getting a test.
