Frequently Asked Covid Testing Questions

Have questions about Covid Testing? We have the answers. Don’t see them below? Contact us to ask a member of our dedicated, experienced team.

What is COVID-19 PCR testing?

COVID-19 testing is a diagnostic test that uses a nasal swab or saliva sample to detect active coronavirus infections, or positive cases of the virus. Getting tested for COVID-19 allows you to take precautions as needed to prevent spreading the virus to other people.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Some people infected with COVID-19 have very mild symptoms, while others can experience:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting

Your symptoms might be mild, moderate, or severe and life-threatening in some cases. COVID-19 symptoms often appear within 2-14 days after being exposed to the virus.

If you’re an older adult or you have underlying medical conditions, such as lung disease, heart disease, or diabetes, you have a higher chance of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms or complications.

What should I expect during COVID-19 testing?

COVID-19 testing uses either a swab or tube to collect a sample of secretions to test for COVID-19. A nasal swab collects from the lower part of your nostril and a saliva tube collects saliva, as you will be asked to spit inside. Both versions are easy and painless, taking under 15 seconds to complete.

How am I notified if I am positive?

Any positive result will be followed up by a Home Covid Health medical provider to confirm quarantine and if any treatment is required. All results are automatically sent via email or text as soon as they are complete, however you can check on the patient portals or chat/call our office with any questions.

Do you do COVID-19 RT-PCR and antigen testing?

We currently only offer COVID-19 RT-PCR testing.

What is the difference between COVID-19 antigen and PCR testing?

RT-PCR is a testing technique which looks for the genetic material of the virus (RNA) and therefore is the gold standard as results are 99.7% accurate.

Can you test for flu/strep at the same time as my Covid test?

Yes, we can. Our Covid tests can test for the flu, as well as over 20 other respiratory pathogens related to flu like symptoms. We also offer strep testing at home, however only if another test is ordered with it as well.
