Rapid virus ("swab testing") checks to see if you’re currently sick with COVID-19. Get tested at any ProHEALTH Urgent Care center.

Antibody testing looks for signs that you were exposed to COVID-19 and your body made antibodies. Get tested at any ProHEALTH Urgent Care center or through your ProHEALTH provider

Both tests can be booked the same day. No copay or deductible.

    • The rapid virus test takes a sample from your nose with a swab. It determines if you have COVID-19 now. Results come back in about 15 minutes. This test is ideal for people who: 
      • Need to be tested before having surgery or a procedure
      • Are visiting family
      • Need to travel
      • Want to be sure they’re not spreading the disease
    • The antibody (“serology”) test is a blood test. It looks for signs that you’ve already had the virus. 

    You don’t need an appointment for the rapid test. But you may want to call ahead or book online. That may shorten your wait time, and help make sure we have enough testing supplies for your visit.

  • The COVID-19 virus test is also known as "swab testing." This is a diagnostic test to determine if you have COVID-19 now. The test is done with a swab that takes a sample of mucous from the nasal passage. 

  • When someone is infected with a virus, the body reacts by producing antibodies (cells that fight illness). Antibody tests, also known as serology tests, look at a patient's blood to see if antibodies can be found.

    The antibody test that ProHEALTH offers is a blood test that determines if you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus and whether or not your body has reacted to it. The COVID-19 antibody test measures the level of coronavirus "IgG" antibodies in the bloodstream. 

    These antibodies appear approximately two weeks after the onset of infection or when someone was exposed to or got sick from COVID-19.

  • If antibodies are found in someone's blood, the person has very likely been infected with COVID-19. 

    This antibody test is most reliable when used more than 14 days after the end of symptoms. Patients are advised to wait until they have been free of symptoms for two to four weeks before taking the test to get more accurate results.

    Some people infected with COVID-19 don't have symptoms. For those who may have been infected but didn't feel sick, it's not possible to time the test with the end of symptoms.

    When the antibody test is given to someone who didn't have symptoms, the results are less certain. Antibodies may not show up on the test because not enough time has gone by since the onset of infection. 

    The blood test will still reliably find antibodies if the infection took place more than two weeks before testing.

    It's important to note that these tests don't prove immunity (if you're protected against getting COVID-19 in the future). The tests also can't tell us if someone who had COVID-19 in the past is contagious or still able to make others sick.

    Even if you have been tested for COVID-19, you should still self-isolate (stay away from others), use social distancing and wear masks in public.

  • The COVID-19 virus swab test can be done at any ProHEALTH Urgent Care or Urgent Care drive-thru location.

  • There are two ways:

    1. Go to any ProHEALTH Urgent Care location. You can simply walk in, or book an appointment online in advance. You'll have your blood drawn and we'll let you know the results.
    2. Call your ProHEALTH doctor to set up an appointment. You can have an in-person visit at the clinic. Or, you can have a virtual visit from home using your phone or computer.

    Your doctor will then give you a referral to go to one of our many lab-draw stations. You can walk in for the appointment at your convenience, when it works best for you. You'll have your blood drawn and you'll be contacted with the results of the test.

  • For both COVID-19 swab and antibody testing, there are no copays or deductibles. Testing will be billed to your insurance, but you won't be responsible for out-of-pocket expenses.
