Which COVID-19 Test Is Right for You?
At Jovive Health, we offer different types of COVID-19 testing. Determining which is the right one for your situation depends on your symptoms and when you think you may have contracted the disease. When you visit our medical care clinic, our providers will recommend the best test for your needs. We’ll also help you understand the results and current local COVID-19 restrictions that are in place. We offer the following tests:
COVID-19 Rapid Tests, Viral PCR Tests & RT-PCR Tests
Rapid antigen tests, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, and rapid molecular PCR tests all require a sample collected by a nasal swab. This sample is then analyzed for the presence of the virus that causes COVID-19. The rapid test can identify an active COVID-19 infection, while the PCR tests, which provides more detailed results, can identify the coronavirus in asymptomatic patients.
COVID-19 Antibody Test
For an antibody test, a blood sample is drawn to determine whether the coronavirus was once in the body. This test is typically given to patients who are recovering from illness and need to confirm if COVID-19 was to blame for their symptoms. Antibody tests can identify the past presence of the coronavirus even in asymptomatic patients.
COVID-19 Test for Kids
If your child is suffering from flu-like symptoms, Jovive Health can test them for COVID-19. At our kids’ COVID-19 testing center in Lombard, we use a saliva PCR test that requires a quick and easy swab of the mouth—a more comfortable alternative to a nasal swab—and provide treatment to help kids feel better.
