Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine is currently providing drive-up Coronavirus testing!
Advanced Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine is pleased to be able to offer drive-up, Coronavirus testing to our communities. Testing will be conducted Monday-Friday, 10am-2pm.
To be tested, please follow the steps below:
If you are experiencing fever, chills/rigors, headache, non-productive cough, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), please call our online visit phone number at 303-558-0509.
One of our providers will assess your symptoms and determine whether an online visit is suitable enough for treatment or if you should be seen in person. We accept most major insurance for these visits. If you are self-pay, we have reduced pricing.
If it is recommended that you get tested for COVID-19, you will be asked to visit our mobile clinic located at our Brighton clinic at 2801 Purcell St or our Stapleton Clinic at 3890 Quebec St for curbside testing. These are both drive-up testing sites.
** Please Note: We are not accepting doctor’s notes at this time. To be tested for Coronavirus (COVID-19) at our mobile clinic, you MUST call 303-558-0509. Testing is subject to supplies availability each day.
What Are The Next Steps?
So you’ve visited one of our drive-up testing sites, and have been tested for Coronavirus (COVID-19)… Now what?
Your test will be sent to a lab. While you await your results, it is best to live under the assumption that you will test positive for COVID-19. This means you should practice self-isolating. Doing this while you wait for your results, will greatly reduce any further spreading of the disease if you do in fact test positive.
A positive test requires that you maintain self-isolation. This means, the complete separation of yourself from others. If you have tested positive, we highly recommend calling our hotline 303-558-0509, to discuss self treatment for ongoing symptoms during isolation. This might include Tylenol for fever, cough suppressants and more. We will recommend a follow up visit with one of our providers. If we suspect the development of pneumonia or other severe symptoms, antibiotics or additional medical treatment might be required.
Self-isolation and treatment should only be discontinued if:
- You no longer have a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
- You have improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) and
- You have a total of two negative tests for COVID-19 that are at least 24hrs. apart
A negative test only says that the virus was not present or not present in a large enough amount to be detected. When testing is negative, the possibility of a false negative result will be considered depending on the context of your recent exposures, the presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and if tests for other causes of illness such as other respiratory illness are negative. If we still suspect COVID-19, or if your symptoms worsen, we will recommend a re-testing.
