Rapid COVID-19 Test (60 Min Result)
A COVID-19 test result in just 20 minutes? Yes! Covid Clinic is proud to be one of the first testing sites to offer the Quidel Corporation Lyra Direct SARS-CoV-2 Assay. This test has received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. Data published on the FDA’s website suggests this test has specificity of 80% and sensitivity of 100%. This test is great for quickly screening individuals for an active COVID-19 infection.
The tip of the cotton swab is inserted into one nostril. The swab does not need to be inserted far – just until the cotton tip of the swab is no longer visible. The swab is then rotated in a circle around the entire inside edge of the nostril at lease three times.
The possible benefits of a COVID-19 test are that the results can help your medical provider make informed recommendations about your care, and the results may help to limit the spread of COVID-19 to your family and others in the community.
COVID Clinic’s service includes pre-test screening, specimen collection, presentation of results, and a post-result telemedicine consultation with a COVID Clinic healthcare professional.
