Frequently Asked Questions
The tests are $75 for the antigen tests with promo code SUMMER22 and $190 for the PCR test. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not pay pharmacies for COVID-19 tests given at the pharmacy. We can provide you with official results when requested that can be used to help submit to insurance companies. Please note that all appointments are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled or rescheduled. If booking a test for travel, please verify with your travel destination before booking your test to ensure that the test will be accepted.
We offer antigen and PCR tests to test for current infections. The rapid antigen test looks for pieces of proteins that make up COVID-19 virus to see if you have an active infection. The antigen test is intended for patients with COVID-19 symptoms and in the early stages of infection, usually within the first 5 days of symptoms. The test can also be helpful if you have been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19. While the median incubation period for COVID-19 is 3-5 days, symptoms can appear up to 14 days after exposure. The rapid PCR test is a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) that uses polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and lateral flow technologies for the qualitative, visual detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal samples.
We currently have the Quidel QuickVue SARS antigen test (Professional Use). According to the Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, Quidel QuickVue has a positive percent agreement of 96.6% and a negative percent agreement of 99.3% compared to a reference extracted EUA SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assay.
We currently have the Accula SARS-CoV-2 PCR Test. According to the Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, the Accula test has a positive percent agreement of 100% and a negative percent agreement of 100% in a prospective clinical study where it was compared to an EUA authorized SARS-CoV-2 Real-Time RT-PCR Assay.
We will administer the test to you curbside or in the pharmacy. If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and/or are experiencing symptoms, we ask that you stay curbside at the pharmacy. You're welcome to come inside the pharmacy if needing it for an event or travel. If you'd like your test curbside, please call the pharmacy when you have arrived.
Results are within a few hours. You will receive an email from [email protected] with your official results to the email you used to sign up for the test. Please check your spam folder before calling us. If you test positive for your rapid PCR or antigen test, we will also call you as well.
A positive test means that you have an active COVID-19 infection.
A negative test result means that the virus that causes COVID-19 was not found in your sample. However, it is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with COVID-19. If you are still concerned that you have COVID-19, please contact your doctor. It could also be too early or too late in the infection to detect the virus.
