Rapid PCR COVID -19 testing Q & A

Same-Day PCR Test Results

Getting fast, accurate COVID test results is essential for making wise public health decisions. When you need the most accurate COVID test done quickly, our same-day PCR test is the perfect choice.

At Live Urgent Care, we act as both your COVID testing site and your PCR test lab. This means we can guarantee you get your results the same day you take your COVID test whether you get a PCR or Antigen test.

Perfect For International Travel

If you are looking to travel, your airline may require you to show a negative COVID test within a 72-hour window of your flight. While many COVID testing sites offer results in 2-4 days, our same-day results help you plan your test with less stress, letting you focus on enjoying your trip instead of worrying about your COVID test.

After your test is complete, your results will be sent to you via a secure link. This will give you digital copies of all the paperwork necessary for international travel so you can email or print them as needed.

Two Types of Covid Tests

At Live Urgent Care, we offer two kinds of COVID tests to help meet your needs.

PCR Covid Test

Our PCR test is the most reliable COVID test we offer. We process each sample collected at our in-house lab, enabling us to guarantee PCR results the same day of your test.

This particular test goes by a number of different names. It may be referred to as a PCR test, an RT-PCR test, or a molecular test. This PCR test is generally the one required for travel.

Rapid Antigen Test

Our rapid antigen is the quickest way to get COVID results. Each of our Live Urgent Care locations can run your test results within 1-2 hours of your test for fast, reliable results.

Rapid antigen tests are incredibly helpful for giving you quick information on potential COVID infection. With regards to travel, some airlines will accept an antigen test. We recommend checking with your airline’s requirements before booking a rapid antigen test for travel.
