Long wait time, understandably, it was busy, and the front desk person called me on my phone and asked us where we were...I told her that we were in one of the examination rooms, waiting for the doc, they forgot that we were there. The staff otherwise were great, the EMT/manager was super helpful, and the doctor was a high-quality guy...it was a great experience overall.

Wait time is awful, but Covid tests clog up waitlist. Front desk staff are overworked, or tired, because very unfriendly and unwilling to help. Medical assistant was awesome however, provided kindness, and expertise. Provider was also very efficient and friendly. So mixed review.

We have come to this Urgebt Care twice and received excellent care both times. First, our son had a bad allergic reaction to an insect bite resulting in full body hives. The staff was quick to see him, communicated well throughout, and explained all options and follow up clearly. Our second time required several stitches for our son and the staff was again great in navigaing difficulties.

Front staff asks you personal questions out loud from her seat after you have sat down in lobby. Allowing others n lobby to hear. Can hear clinical staff outside my room talking about me. I got the impression my case was an annoyance.

Latest COVID Testing Updates

COVID Testing FAQs

  • How much does COVID testing cost in Fuquay Varina?

    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 Fuquay Varina?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Fuquay Varina 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 Fuquay Varina?

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

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Fuquay Varina 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 Fuquay Varina?

    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 Fuquay Varina?

    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.

Welcome to Fuquay-Varina, NC, AFC! I was seen today for a Rapid COVID test. The staff was friendly, very helpful and professional. All my questions were answered. I will definitely return with any other medical issues! It is also a beautiful facility.

Since the pandemic afc has been the easiest and friendliest place for covid testing and care. I’ve attempted other centers for testing that were not friendly nor had any available appts (day of). Wild recommend afc for easy access and friendly care.

- Verified patient on 8/29

Went in for a rapid covid test and the technician and doctor were very friendly and I was in and out in about an hour. I would use AFC again.

- Verified patient on 1/29

We waited a really long time to get back rapid results for a covid test and we had a scheduled appt and filled out everything ahead of time. Once we got test it was 1 1/2 hr wait when we were told it would be 20 min

- Verified patient on 10/30

Needed a rapid Covid test! Booked my appointment online and was able to be seen quickly. Loved being able to stay in the car to be tested. Quick results and friendly staff. Thanks for making this easy!

- Verified patient on 9/28

Called ahead and was told I could just walk in for a Covid test for my child. We walked in, were asked to sign in and then go back to our car and wait. Then went back in when called, tested in triage and put in an exam room. Then waited for the NP to examine and give the results. Overall the entire process took an hour, which is a long time for a 4yo and 6yo to wait. I will say that absolutely every staff member we encountered was very pleasant, sweet and helpful! I would be willing to return just for the amazing staff!

- Verified patient on 6/14

I need a rapid covid test within 12 hours and this crowd, from the initial phone call to the swab itself, showed nothing but welcoming professionalism. They were very polite, well mannered and it seemed like they actually cared about my situation. Excellent experience

We were very happy with our experience at AFC Fuquay-Varina! The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend anyone in the area to see them for urgent care needs or to get aCovid test for travel.

Needed to have my granddaughter seen for a covid test. The front desk attendant was very friendly and helpful. They called us back quickly. The nurse was amazing with my six year old. She calmed all her fears. Doctor was very friendly and attentive and answered all our questions. A plus!

I was in and out, on Christmas Eve within 45 min with a negative Covid test. I am super impressed at how quick, and efficient your staff is. The poor nurse who had to swab me in the drive through had to stand in the pouring rain. I don’t know what she makes- but it’s not enough. ;) Thanks for all you do!

Our Covid test went well. We are now cleared to meet with family over Christmas. Music in waiting and check in area was a bit loud and was more suited for the young people working there and not the middle to upper age patients.

Great place! Was in there last minute for a covid test and felt like maybe my son needed to be seen. It was the last appointment of the night and they said no problem we will take care of him. Great costumer service. I highly recommend it here!

Jason and Z were great! I really appreciate them getting our large family in for Covid tests on a busy day. Jason was so very good with getting our small kids less scared with the test and I don’t know if anyone could have done a better job. He was amazing. And Z was super helpful with organizing the time slots to get our huge family done at once which I imagine was no easy task. We will most definitely be coming back if needed! Thanks y’all!

This was my second visit here. I was seen, tested, got my results, and home in 49 minutes. The staff is extremely friendly, and the facility is very clean. Hopefully, I won’t need another COVID test, but if I do, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Even though my daughter and I had to come in for Covid testing, the staff was wonderful and made us feel very welcome and comfortable.

We. Went in for a rapid COVID test. We had virtually no wait (we scheduled an appt), the office was extremely clean, they offered us snacks and water, and they were extremely friendly. I will go again and recommend AFC to anyone asking for an Urgent Care recommendation!

Fuquay Varina 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.
