My 2 kids needed covid testing due to a potential exposure at daycare. I booked online appointments half an hour apart, and arrived a bit early - 20 minutes before the first appointment. They were able to check us in straightaway and take both kids simultaneously. We were out the door in just about 30 minutes, including time to get lollipops and admire the fun paintings. The staff were all so kind and friendly, they made the process as easy as possible. It was our first time at PM Pediatrics, and it’s easy to see why they are so highly recommended.

First time patients, my family and I needed a COVID test. We had made an appointment at CVS, and when we arrived we were told we couldn’t take the tests. PM Pediatrics was quick to help us out. The staff was friendly and helpful and we are able to get our results the same day. I would recommend PM Pediatrics to others, and my wife and I would certainly bring our son back for urgent care.

My first time at PM Pediatrics. Even though t walkin wait was about 1 and half hours, the staff was very accommodating and notify me when my turn is near. Nurse ( Michelle, I think) was super nice to my 8 year old to make him feel as comfortable as possible. Dr on duty was very nice and efficient too. Definitely will recommend.

For a first time visit, I was very impressed. From the phone call the day prior, making the appointment was swift. Excellent attendance in the front. Very polite staff from the waiting area to the exam room… Excellent bed side manners of the Pediatrician, and medical assistant. My daughter felt at ease.. I’m certain we will be back if the need arises.

Latest COVID Testing updates

Jun 15, 2022
COVID vaccines for kids under 5 move closer to FDA authorization after committee backs shots. The FDA’s committee of independent vaccine experts voted unanimously to recommend Moderna and Pfizer’s shots for use in infants through toddlers. The FDA will likely accept the recommendation and authorize the shots this week.(CNBC)
Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)

COVID Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost in Elkridge?

    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 Elkridge?

    COVID testing is available for free under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which includes testing for those without health insurance. Check with your Elkridge-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 Elkridge?

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Elkridge 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 Elkridge?

    Rapid testing—both PCR (molecular) and antigen tests—is offered through many Elkridge-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 Elkridge?

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Elkridge 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 Elkridge?

    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 in Elkridge?

    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.

They came to my car and had me tested and ready to go about 5 minutes before I was scheduled to be there. The staff was friendly and helped to explain details about the COVID test I was given.

I had a slight fever , headache, body aches, congestion, coughing. I looked at other options for flu and CoVid testing but couldn’t get it done for several days. Called Ouch! Urgent care on recommendation of primary care physician’s office staff. I called and was told all appointments were full for today but to get in and I would be tested. When I arrived I called and was told to move to Cone 2. I sat in car and registered. Staff came and got my cards and later did nasal swab. Great service!

Very pleasant. My only suggestion is that you offer a paper list sign in. As a senior citizen, I found the electronic sign up system for walk in covid testing to be challenging. Otherwise, I was very satisfied. Thank you

This was my second time to visit this Ouch facility and went in just to have a Covid test done after being possibly exposed. Even though I didn't enter into building, the staff was very punctual as for my appointment time and came out to my car to do test and swab my nose. Also was very happy and surprised to see a very familiar face on your staff who previously worked at my primary care doctor's office. Great visit, great staff members and great professional, quick time services being rendered.

I went in for a Covid test. Overall the operation was very smooth, but I will say that there was a lot of set up in the beginning when I had to go through all the webpages to register. It seem like a lot more information was needed to set up my account just to get a Covid test. But the staff was fantastic

I knew as a walk up for covid testing I would have to wait awhile but even still I could see the attendant going thru efficiently and quickly. She was very patient with my questions and friendly and the Dr. I talked to on the phone listened compassionately and was very helpful. I live on the other side of town but loved my first experience at this Ouch! I would never go anywhere else. Thank you!

Everything was great except it was kinda confusing about the fact that u must get a Covid test there before u can actually make a dr appt. This was not clear on website or with all of the emails and texts…etc… But when I got there the nurse doing the testing explained everything to me! She was wonderful.

I did not go inside because it was for a covid test, but the staff was extremely friendly and efficient. I appreciated being able to access the forms online so I didn’t have to waste any unnecessary time during the work day. They took my insurance (unitedhealthcare choice) and I had no issues. Highly recommended :)

Went for COVID test. Woman who was performing was running to get everybody taken care of quickly. Even as people were honking at her, she smiled the whole time. She is a great woman and thank you for having her.

We arrived a minute or two before the appointment time and the staff member greeted me as we parked and got started immediately. The COVID test was quick, painless and I recommend them for anyone needing urgent care without the emergency room delay.

The staff person working with the COVID testing was hustling to every car and working so hard with patients. She was friendly yet efficient. I appreciate her thoroughness with the process while being friendly. Staff like her are the reason I go to the Ouch clinic and why I recommend it to all of my friends.

Had to get a COVID test for my daughter who starts college in the fall. The lady who assisted us was the sweetest and kindest person and made my daughter, who was scared feel comfortable. She was awesome!

Quick and as painless as a covid test can really be. My only concern is the tech opened the door with the same gloves she had on when interacting with a patient. I am a healthcare worker and that is a big no no. Insurance covered my test.

- Verified patient on 12/7

COVID testing arrived @ 10am 70 people ahead of me finally got tested 3hrs Later @ 1:00pm only one tech administrating the test it seemed well organized she still was pleasant considering the amount of people there for the test. I will wait and see how long it will take for the results? The reviews said average of 48hrs hopefully I will see them today? The only concern I have was that the system said I visited Ouches Office site @ 6:30pm I’m assuming that they just processed the paperwork at that time and there wasn’t any mix up with the paperwork?

Elkridge 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.
