COVID-19 rapid testing for travel…or just peace of mind
Walk-in rapid testing for COVID-19 is available without an appointment at all of our Urgent Care centers, with results provided in 15 minutes. This test is conducted using the Abbott ID Now molecular test, which is also a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). Rapid testing at urgent care is an option if you are seeking testing for travel or to monitor your health and if you are not symptomatic or have had known exposure to a person confirmed positive for COVID-19. Please visit our COVID-19 Testing page for more details.
Communication with your primary care physician
For the continuity of your care, it’s important that your primary care physician (PCP) is kept in the loop if you do need to seek urgent care. A visit to our Urgent Care is promptly communicated if your PCP is with Cape Cod Healthcare, for additional follow up that may be needed.
