COVID-19 Testing at NewMed Immediate Care

Recognizing the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is crucial for managing the virus’s spread and ensuring public health. COVID-19 testing is vital for anyone experiencing symptoms like fever, cough, body aches, or shortness of breath, as well as those who may have been exposed to the virus through travel or contact with infected individuals.

Who Should Get Tested?

Individuals recommended for COVID-19 testing include those who:

  • Exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.
  • Have had close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient.
  • Work in high-risk environments like healthcare facilities or long-term care homes.
  • Have plans to travel or have recently returned from a trip.
  • Require testing for workplace or school protocols.

Scheduling and Testing Process in Rolling Meadows

To arrange a COVID-19 test at NewMed Immediate Care, contact our office where our team will conduct a preliminary screening to assess your situation and advise the most appropriate testing approach. We accommodate same-day appointments for individuals showing symptoms and provide prompt scheduling for asymptomatic cases.

During your visit, a healthcare provider will administer a nasopharyngeal swab, a quick but sometimes uncomfortable procedure. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for thorough analysis.

Results and Follow-Up

Typically, COVID-19 test results are available within 24 hours, although occasionally it may take longer to receive confirmation from the lab. While awaiting results, it is crucial to adhere to strict isolation guidelines to prevent possible transmission of the virus.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Besides viral testing, NewMed Immediate Care also offers COVID-19 antibody testing, which is essential for identifying past exposure to the virus. This test checks for the presence of specific antibodies (IgG), which are produced by the body in response to the infection.

How Antibody Testing Works

Antibody testing involves a simple blood draw. The presence of IgG antibodies generally indicates a previous infection and may suggest some level of immunity, though the duration and effectiveness of this immunity are still being researched.
