Did you know there are different types of COVID-19 tests?

When considering the Rapid Antigen Test, the good points are that it is a 15-minute test, and if it's positive, you're positive. But on the bad side, a single negative test does not mean you will remain negative.  There is a small possibility that you could still have the virus and you still may need to quarantine.

In comparison, the PCR Test stands out for being 99% accurate for positive or negative results. But unfortunately, it has a longer turnaround time for results -- usually taking 24-48 hours.

If you have symptoms, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please visit one of our clinics in Clifton or Whitney to determine if you have Covid 19. Walk-ins and new patients are welcome. Remember, symptoms could develop up to 14 days after exposure.

For more information, please call 254-675-8621 in Clifton or 254-694-2221 in Whitney.
