COVID-19 Testing

Family Medicine and Acute Care of Sandhills

Primary Care Practice located in Cameron, NC

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to people who have symptoms or have tested positive, you may want to be tested.

We are offering COVID-19 testing at our office.  You do not have to be a current patient.  You will have a virtual visit with one of our healthcare providers to review your symptoms and have a COVID-19 test. Please call or request and fill out an online appointment request.

If you experience the following symptoms, call 911 so you can be transported to the nearest emergency department for evaluation:

  • Extreme difficulty breathing (for example, cannot speak in a full sentence or walk across the room without having to stop to catch your breath)
  • Blue lips, face, or skin
  • Severe chest pain
  • Confusion, new-onset slurred speech, or seizure activity

 

Types of testing available:

Molecular lab test (PCR)

The PCR test is the most accurate and reliable test available for COVID-19. The sample collection is done using a swab to collect respiratory material found in your nose. The PCR test can be used for travel, and results are received within 2-4 days.

Rapid antigen testing

The COVID-19 rapid testing can be used for individuals who were recently infected or experiencing symptoms – including fever, cough, difficulty breathing. The rapid antigen test can provide results within the same day. This test is not accurate if you are not experiencing symptoms.
