I've been here twice so far and it's been great. I did wait a long time to be seen the first time but I was a walk-in and most everybody had appointments. The X-rays I had taken were really quick. The Chiropractor explains everything really good and the staff is very nice.

COVID Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost?

    In many cases, COVID testing can be free. Many state and local health departments continue to offer free testing to community residents as part of their response to the pandemic. In other cases, commercially insured patients, or those on Medicare or Medicaid, may receive testing at no out of pocket cost, or with a nominal office visit copay. For cash paying patients, or those that need rapid COVID testing which will deliver results in under an hour, COVID tests can range from $50 to $150 each. It is best to call your healthcare provider prior to getting tested to better understand the cost of the specific test you require.

  • Where can I get free COVID testing in Sacramento?

    COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. Check with your Sacramento-area health department as they are generally a good source for free COVID tests, or can at least point you in the right direction. Additionally, you can ask your primary care provider to recommend a free COVID test site.

  • Where can I get COVID testing in Sacramento?

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Sacramento including urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care offices, health departments, and more. Different venues will have different types of tests available, many at different price points. Some testing sites are allowing walk-in patients, however, many are still requiring some degree of advance booking to control patient volume.

  • Where can I get a rapid COVID test in Sacramento?

    Rapid testing—both PCR (molecular) and antigen tests—is offered through many Sacramento-area urgent care centers and physician offices, usually at an additional cost ranging from $50 up to $150 per test. Usually this will allow you to get results back in under an hour, and require advanced booking through the provider. However, if you can wait 24 hours for your results, many labs are turning around send-out lab tests in that time frame, which could save you some money.

  • How to make an appointment for COVID testing in Sacramento?

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Sacramento are bookable directly through Solv. Simply browse the list of healthcare providers conducting COVID tests above, find one with a “Book Online” button, and book a time that aligns with your schedule stating “COVID-19 Test” as your reason for visit.

  • Can I get tested for antibodies if I am sick with COVID-19?

    An antibody test for COVID-19 might inform you if you previously had a coronavirus infection. Because it can take between 1–3 weeks after an infection for your body to develop these antibodies, an antibody test during an active infection would not be successful. To see if you are currently infected, you need a viral test.

  • Do I need a COVID test if I have been vaccinated?

    Even if you have been fully vaccinated, if you have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, experts believe that you should be tested yourself, particularly if you are experiencing cold and flu symptoms commonly aligned with the coronavirus.

  • How long does COVID testing take?

    Getting a COVID test is quick. Most tests are done with a nasal swab, which takes less than a minute to swab both nostrils. Depending on where you get your COVID test, this means you could be in and out of the testing site in as little as 10-15 minutes. During busy times—particularly around holidays—testing sites may be busier than usual and wait times may be longer.

  • How long does it take to get COVID test results?

    Most labs are returning send-out molecular (PCR) COVID test results within 24-48 hours of the test. Some sites take longer, so call and ask if the reason for the test is proof for travel. Rapid COVID tests are processed on-site and are able to deliver results in under an hour, sometimes in as little as 15 min.

  • Do COVID tests detect the Delta variant and Omicron variant?

    Regular COVID tests are able to detect both the Delta variant and Omicron variant in that they can determine whether or not you have the coronavirus. However, they can't tell which variation is involved. That would necessitate genomic sequencing, which is a different process from regular virus testing that not all labs can undertake. Sequencing is uncommon and can cost up to $100 per test. Since the treatment is the same for any variant, it is not clinically useful to an individual patient to know whether the infection was caused by a variant or not.

Recent COVID Testing reviews (20)

I went in this urgent care for a quick covid test and the ladies in there were very nice and took care of me in a timely manner even with all the customers they had. Was a great experience.

- Verified patient on 5/8

The location was a bit hard to find, the address itself takes you to a road at the airport which confused me but I found it eventually! It’s next to the Arco gas satiation so if you’re having trouble like I did. But the staff was friendly and very nice! The test is one you administer on yourself but they explain that and he’ll you through it. Definitely a good place to go for a quick COVID test !

- Verified patient on 12/23

Wonderful experience today. Scheduled an appt on line for a COVID test. They had immediate availability. Staff are professional, thorough and empathetic! I highly recommend a visit when in need! It is by far the best urgent care I have ever used!

- Verified patient on 9/24

Very organized outdoor drive thru COVID testing area at the Sacramento Metropolitan Airport. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Scheduled my appointment online. I was in and out in 30min.

- Verified patient on 1/6

Super easy to get a covid test right in my car. And the results came quickly. I didn’t rate facility cleanliness as it was outside, but everyone was masked and gloves and maintained distance. Excellent!

- Verified patient on 12/21

Friendly staff and the wait time was not long at all...both my husband and I had appointments for 1:43 & 1:46... we were given the test and sent on our way... about 23 hours later we were notified by text that our results were in. We took the covid test because we are flying to Hawaii and the are required 72 hours prior to departure...getting our results back so quickly lifted a huge stress off of both of us....we will definitely be using them again!!

- Verified patient on 1/20

Visited the Drive-Up COVID TEST LOCATION SMF1, and the service was fast and easy, bit of a wait time, but lines moved at good speed

- Verified patient on 2/15

I went to get COVID tested at SMF and would definitely go here again. It was nearby my home, very quick, easy, and less busy compared to other testing sites I’ve been to. I was only there for 10-15 minutes.

- Verified patient on 3/10

The wait seemed long because it was drive by Covid Testing. Other than that, everything else was quick and easy. Staff were very friendly and were dressed appropriately/ wore masks.

- Verified patient on 1/12

scheduled COVID test at airport the next day, nasal swab was easy. Staff was friendly and the process took no more that 10 mi total.

- Verified patient on 1/22

- Verified patient on 4/28

Went for Covid test at SMF for flight to Hawaii. Nice people short wait time and had my test and certificate done in time for my flight.

- Verified patient on 1/17

It was one amazing experience. Initially, I was panicking for the test but there was a Man who made us comfortable by giving us brief idea about how easy it will be, and he wasn’t wrong at all! Right from us entering, showing our ID, to taking the test everything was pretty smooth and super easy. The staff was friendly, respectful, joyful and made us comfortable and told us everything in detail. To be honest now I won’t be scared of taking tests if needed. It was great experience. I would highly recommend doing your COVID tests here.

- Verified patient on 12/29

Did my covid test at SMF at 933am, just under 72 hours before my flight to hawaii. Received my results after 30 hours on a 48 hour test. The staff was great. The whole process went very well.

- Verified patient on 2/1

The staff was very friendly and quick with the COVID tests. I needed a quick COVID test to get back to work and they accommodated very well while following protocol. I would 100% recommend this company to get a COVID test from.

- Verified patient on 5/18

I’ve just finished my 4th COViD test this week due to exposure at work negative every time. Staff are very friendly, kind and caring.no bad experience at all.

- Verified patient on 1/7

My wife has not gotten her Covid test results. I got mine. They were both on at the same time and we are concerned that there was a technical problem. Time critical. Customer service in helping has been great. Please help us if you can.

- Verified patient on 1/3

Drive through covid test for travel was very smooth. The staff was very communicative, and efficient. Much appreciated as we move through the pandemic to normalize life and repair the economy with safety.

- Verified patient on 1/26

I arrived for a Covid test and was told they were not doing them due to limited staff. I had an appointment and had driven from Elk Grove. One of the nurses said she would gown up and do a rapid test. When that came back negative she said to be safe let's do regular one. They really stepped up and I very much appreciated it.

- Verified patient on 11/17

I took my covid test at the Sacramento Airport. It was quick efficient and the staff was very friendly. I will be going back to retest for my job.

Sacramento COVID Testing & Rapid Testing

Types of COVID Tests

There are two types of coronavirus tests (COVID-19 tests) available, those that can test for a current infection (viral test) and those that can test for a past infection (antibody test).

Viral COVID testing can be done in a few different ways, the most common being nose swabs, but saliva tests are becoming more popular. Some tests are processed out on-site and can provide results in as little as 30 minutes. These are called rapid COVID tests. The majority of tests, on the other hand, are collected at the clinic on-site and then submitted to off-site labs for processing. Results can take up to 2-3 days to arrive. 

Antibody testing looks for a past infection and may not reveal if you have an active COVID-19 infection because antibodies can take up to three weeks to form in your body. The presence of COVID antibodies may help to prevent you from becoming infected with the same virus again; but, because the clinical understanding of COVID-19 is still developing, it's unclear how long that protection will continue.

Who should get tested for current infection

The CDC currently defines four instances where COVID testing is recommended:

  1. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 including fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
  2. If you have been in close contact with someone with confirmed COVID-19. Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. If you have been vaccinated, or tested positive in the past 3 months and not experiencing symptoms, you do not need to be tested.
  3. If you are unvaccinated and participated in high-risk activities where distancing is not an option. This could include travel, large social or mass gatherings, crowded indoor settings, etc.
  4. If you have been referred to get a COVID test by your healthcare provider or local health department. 

How is testing done for COVID-19?

Most COVID tests are collected by a nasal swab. A member of the medical team puts a swab inside your nose for a few seconds on each side to collect the sample. After that, the samples are packaged according to CDC guidelines and tested on-site or transported to a facility for testing. The lab will test samples for the presence of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes COVID infection and either your care provider or the lab will notify you with the results as soon as they are available.

PCR vs Antigen Testing

Viral COVID tests are available as molecular and antigen tests. The molecular test, also known as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, usually delivers results within a few days since most of these tests are sent to offsite labs for analysis. The average turnaround time for PCR test results is 48 hours, but in some instances may be significantly longer due to backlogs related to insufficient lab volume and capacity. Antigen tests are also known as rapid tests and have an average turnaround time of between 15 to 30 minutes.

Both PCR and rapid COVID tests can be used to test people exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, those who were close contacts to COVID-19, and those without COVID-19 symptoms who live or work in a high-risk setting (such as a nursing facility); or those individuals who are identified as part of outbreak detection and response. The rapid COVID test is also recommended for the screening of residents or healthcare workers at skilled nursing facilities along with a PCR confirmation, and for repeat screening for the early detection and prevention of outbreaks in congregate settings (such as schools, workplaces, and prisons).

COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. To reduce the risk of facing extra costs related to COVID testing, ask your primary care doctor to recommend a free COVID test site, and confirm there are no charges or fees for the test that are not covered by your insurance plan. Additionally, avoid getting a COVID test at a hospital or free-standing emergency room, as these facilities may charge fees for COVID testing and related services.
