Should I get tested?
It is recommended you get tested if you develop any major COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, tiredness, dry cough or loss of taste or smell.
Other minor symptoms to watch out for include shortness of breath, aches, sore throat, diarrhea, nausea and a runny nose.
You should also consider getting tested if you have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case.
We have a PCR swab test which is 97% accurate. The results are available within 24 hours and if necessary it can be expedited to approximately 6 hours. We also have blood antibody tests which can test for past or current infection. We can send a home saliva testing kit out if you have any symptoms as we will not allow symptomatic individuals to enter our clinic.
