COVID-19 Testing And Care

The Family Medical of Chubbuck is consistently on the loop for all coronavirus and COVID-19 information. Our urgent care practices aim to reflect all the latest recommendations from the World Health Organization and other related institutions. 

Testing Services Available

We offer three types of tests: Rapid Nasal Swab Antigen, Saliva and Nasal Swab PCR, and Antibody testing. 

Rapid Nasal Swab Antigen

For symptomatic patients, this test will detect if you are actively infected with Covid-19. Turn around time is usually 10 minutes.

Saliva and Nasal Swab PCR

If you need proof of Covid test due to travel requirements, this is the standard test and widely accepted.  Testing is usually recommended for symptomatic patients, asymptomatic patients with known exposure, work clearance, pre-procedure/pre-surgery, travel (excludes Hawaii), etc. Turn around time is usually 2-3 days, but could be sooner.

Antibody Testing

This test will determine if you have previous exposure or suspected history of Covid-19 infection. Results generally available within 2-3 days, sometimes sooner.

Treatments may include prescription medications and, when indicated, labs, imaging or care coordination with advanced medical care services to ensure you receive the care you need to stay safe.

Prevention of Covid-19

As the old adage goes, prevention is always better than cure. We highly recommend observing health protocols and follow the basic preventive actions as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to combat the onset and spread of the virus. 

  1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. 
  2. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% of alcohol
  3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick or are showing symptoms of the disease. Maintain 6-feet distance all the time.
  4. Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes.
  5. As much as possible, stay at home. 
  6. If you are experiencing difficulty in breathing, have fever, or showing other symptoms, seek medical help at once. Our urgent care facility can accommodate patients without prior appointment.
