Take Advantage of Virtual Visits for COVID-19 in Norwalk, CT
If you’re concerned that you might have COVID-19 but you’re hesitant to visit a brick-and-mortar location for diagnosis and treatment, you’re not alone. Many people are concerned about spreading the virus to others or exposing themselves to other germs. Others have trouble coordinating transportation to an office or arranging for childcare while they’re gone.
Luckily, if you’re in Norwalk, Connecticut, you have another option available to you. That’s because PhysicianOne Urgent Care—a trusted immediate care provider—offers virtual visits for COVID-19 to patients in this area. During a virtual visit, you’ll speak to a knowledgeable provider over a secure videoconferencing platform, using either a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer with a webcam. Depending on your symptoms, the provider may suggest that you come in for testing—we offer polymerase chain reaction (PCR), rapid antigen, and antibody testing, and we prioritize patients whom we’ve already spoken to over our telemedicine system.
What Are the Symptoms of COVID-19?
COVID-19 symptoms typically appear within two to 14 days after the time of infection, and may include:
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Sore throat
- Muscle pain
- New loss of taste or smell
It’s important to note that you can still be infected with COVID-19 without experiencing any symptoms at all.
