What are the COVID-19 Rapid Tests?

The COVID-19 antigen rapid test is a Sofia Antigen test that is manufactured by the Quidel Corporation. This test is a nasal swab. According to the FDA, the antigen rapid test COVID detects the virus by looking for proteins from the virus. This test is a highly specific test, but less sensitive than the molecular (PCR) tests.

If you have questions, please visit our FAQ page.

COVID-19 Treatment

Whether you test positive or negative, our providers are here for you until you are feeling better. To help monitor your health, we recommend checking in with us virtually every 1-2 days until you are no longer experiencing symptoms. If we suspect the development of pneumonia or other severe symptoms, antibiotics or additional medical treatment might be required. Please schedule a telehealth visit to meet with our providers. We will recommend re-testing as needed.

Antibody Testing

Antibody blood tests, also called antibody tests, check your blood by looking for antibodies, which show if you had a previous infection with the virus. Antibodies are proteins that help fight off infections. Depending on when someone was infected and the timing of the test, the test may not find antibodies in someone with a current COVID-19 infection.

In addition to the antibody blood test, we highly recommend receiving the nasopharyngeal swab (COVID-19 test) to check for viral shedding, especially if you are asymptomatic. Co-testing is the best way to receive the most accurate results. If interested, please call us at 303-558-0509 to schedule.
