COVID-19 Testing for Residents & Visitors in Southington, CT

A nurse with PPE administers a COVID test to a woman patient.

It can be unsettling to start experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19, such as having a fever, chills, a cough, body aches, shortness of breath, or a new loss of taste and/or smell. It makes sense that you want to be tested as soon as possible to make sure you don’t have the virus. Thankfully, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is here for you. At our facility in Southington, Connecticut, we offer COVID-19 testing every day of the week and you don’t even need to make an appointment. You can turn to us for:

Rapid Antigen Testing

Our rapid tests deliver results within 15 minutes, ensuring you can have the answers you need quickly. It involves a nasopharyngeal swab to collect nose and throat secretions that will be examined for protein fragments specific to the coronavirus. Rapid tests generally deliver accurate results when someone is at the peak stage of their infection.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Testing

Considered the “gold standard” of COVID-19 testing, PCR tests are typically more accurate than rapid tests. That’s because they use a polymerase chain reaction to identify the viral genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus. They can detect this material during the acute illness and shortly afterward. The results of a PCR test are available within one to three days.

Antibody testing

Wondering if you recently had a case of COVID-19? We can conduct antibody testing that detects if certain proteins (IgM and IgG) are present in your body. Because these proteins are produced by the immune system as a response to a COVID-19 infection, having them can indicate you had a past case of the virus.

Visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Southington if you need prompt COVID-19 testing. You can schedule a Virtual Visit to have your symptoms evaluated by one of our medical practitioners beforehand, and if they believe you should get tested, your test will be prioritized when you arrive.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
