Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Drive Thru Testing

What Are My COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Options?

Atlanta Urgent Care offers drive thru Rapid & PCR testing for COVID-19. PCR results return on the following day within 1-2 days (excluding holidays). Rapid Antigen test results are available in 15-20 mins! Please quarantine until you have results in hand.

Due to very high volumes, COVID 19 tests are all drive thru only, at both locations. If you are sick and need to speak to a physician about your symptoms, then you can walk in and tell our staff about your symptoms.

Due to very high call volumes, we are switching our COVID test scheduling process from over-the-phone to online. We have a new scheduling platform that will allow our patients to schedule a telemedicine visit and be appointed a swab time. Please click the blue button below to schedule a test.

Please keep in mind that due to very high call volumes, you may not be able to reach us over the phone. Please use our online scheduler by clicking on the blue button below, the is the only way to get an appointment.

We schedule one day at a time & open up the calendar at after 5pm on the day prior.
If you do not see any appointments, then we are booked up. Check again at 5pm.

How Much Does A covid-19 test Cost Without Insurance?

Covid-19 testing is largely covered by insurance under the CARES Act. If you do not have insurance, we offer a self-pay option for $200.

Do I need a rapid covid-19 test or PCR test?

Some airlines require a PCR test in order to travel. Some employers require them, as well.  PCR testing is the “gold standard” and is, to date, the most accurate. Rapid testing is a good option for those who need immediate (15 minute) results and do not specifically require a PCR test.

How long do Covid-19 test results take?

PCR test results are available in 1-2 days, excluding holidays. Rapid test results are available in about 15 minutes.

Do I Need An Appointment To Be Seen?

You must use our appointment scheduling portal as instructed above to receive a COVID test. Walk-ins are always welcome at our urgent care locations for non-COVID related illnesses and ailments.

What is the process for covid-19 testing?

The time slot you will choose using our scheduling system is to secure the appointment for the day you chose and we will assign a swabbing time after the virtual visit.

As a reminder, our process is as follows, the day of your appointment, we will verify your insurance or call to collect payment if you are a cash patient. You will receive a link on your cell phone for a virtual visit with our provider sometime after 8:00 am on the day you booked your appointment. Our calls for virtual visits are generally between 8 am to 4 pm.

During that virtual visit, you will be assigned a time to come in for your swabbing appointment between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm at the location where you booked your appointment. PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE BUILDING, YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME WILL BE ASSIGNED TO YOU FOR A DRIVE-THRU SWAB BY THE PROVIDER DURING YOUR VIRTUAL VISIT.

What do my viral test results mean for me?

If you are told you have a positive viral test, most likely you currently have an active COVID-19 infection and you can give the virus to others. Follow instructions from your provider about isolation and when you can leave home.

If you are told you have a negative viral test, most likely you do NOT currently have an active COVID-19 infection. However, there is a small possibility the result is a false negative. Continue taking steps to protect yourself and prevent spread of the virus.

How Will I Receive My covid-19 Test Results?

After being contacted by the doctor, attending the virtual visit, being swabbed, and leaving the clinic, you will be contacted by our staff via telephone to give you your results. If you need an email as proof of results, please let our staff know and we can provide an email for you.
