Latest COVID Testing updates

May 10, 2022
The nation's flu positivity test rate reached nearly 10 percent in mid-April, making it the first time such an increase has occurred so late in the flu season since 1982 (NBC News)
May 6, 2022
The Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV2 virus is intrinsically as severe as previous variants, according to a preprint version of a large U.S. study that counters assumptions in other studies that it was more transmissible but less severe. (Reuters)

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 Edmond?

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

    COVID testing is available at many outlets near Edmond 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 Edmond?

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

    Same-day and next day appointments for COVID testing in Edmond 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 wish I would have known I needed to come in person or get a Covid test before being charged for a virtual office visit. Now I need to make an appointment someplace to be seen.

- Verified patient on 12/7

Everyone was so nice and professional giving me a covid test. I was nervous and the staff put me at ease. I am so glad to have found Access Medical and will recommend to friends and family!

- Verified patient on 1/13

Had to get my Mother 2nd Covid test to be able to move her into Elderly residential place. Your system prevented her from having to stand in line or go inside avoiding a potential exposure. You guys are awesome!

- Verified patient on 7/19

I went for a rapid Covid test. I was able to wait in my car and they took care of everything. The doctor and nurse came out to my car to administer the test and to discuss the visit. Overall a pleasant experience. My results came back quicker than I thought they would. Would use them again for Covid testing.

- Verified patient on 1/27

Dr. Lillian was great. She took time to explain things to me without rushing. I waited 45 minutes past my appointment time (5:45 pm), but that is understandable considering all the COVID cases right now. No copay for COVID test.

- Verified patient on 8/28

We did rapid covid test from our car. Dr and nurse we very nice, explained everything and answered all our questions. Very pleasant experience and have always been well taken care of when visiting that facility.

- Verified patient on 11/15

My Mother needed Covid test to move into senior apartment building. She’s 85 and uses walker and was 110 deg with heat index. Your staff did test in car to make it easier for her. Everyone was awesome!

- Verified patient on 7/12

Had great experience with Covid test. They do not make you go into office with other ill patients and touch everything!! Did paperwork online, checked in online when I got there. Doctor came out immediately, talked to me and did limited exam at car and was very friendly! Then did Covid test and came out 15 minutes later with results.

- Verified patient on 9/7

Went to get a covid test. Process was very easy, filled out paperwork on my phone while waiting in the car. Friendly staff came out to swab me. Got my results very quickly! I’m very impressed! The NP and nursing staff were so kind!

- Verified patient on 4/25

The PA that did my COVID test was awesome. He explained everything and was really nice. I think his name was Alexis. He was great. The receptionist was quick and got me in with very little wait. She was very nice as well!

- Verified patient on 10/14

We needed rapid COVID tests for three family members, and the entire process, from registering online, to checking in, to getting our results, could not have been more seamless. Exceptional.

- Verified patient on 10/22

I went in for a Covid test 72 hours prior to traveling to Italy. The staff was efficient, professional and very nice. The facility was immaculate. I made an appointment on line from my phone and was in and out with my paper test results in about 30 minutes.

Very professional staff. Came for a Covid test. Was given good instructions in case it was positive, thank goodness it wasn’t. Was in from out of state, treated like I’d been a patient here forever. Highly recommend!

All the other urgent care clinics were booked and I needed to get a rapid COVID test for work. I was able to get an COVID test in on the same day.

Super easy to schedule appt. online. I was seen as soon as I got there, and the staff was very friendly and efficient. I didn’t have to get out of my car for the covid test, and I had results in 15 minutes!

There was some confusion on how to proceed as far as needing to call when outside and waiting for the Covid test but overall it wasn't a bad experience.

Had to be COVID tested. Despite the pouring rain, the nurse came out and checked all my vitals, listened carefully to my lungs sounds, and made recommendations were to to turn out to be only a sinus infection. Thank God it wasn't COVID, and thank God for the wonderful staff at First Med!

The nurses were very friendly, helpful in answering my questions, and listened to my concerns. Excellent service! I did not feel rushed, but felt heard and valued. Very professional and efficient in getting me my Covid test and strep test taken care of. As well as, giving me helpful paper work to read after my appointment for follow up care.

Edmond 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.
