Patients can now get rapid COVID-19 test results at Velocity Urgent Care, even without showing signs of symptoms. All Velocity locations, including the one in Gloucester, have the BD Veritor and Quidel Sofia 2 instant analyzers, capable of running COVID-19 antigen tests faster than the average test, a release said.
All rapid testing is performed on patients with a nasal swab, with results in less than 15 minutes.
Velocity initially launched its rapid testing on Aug. 12 and now has the capability to test all patients without any limitations such as a patient experiencing symptoms, prolonged exposure to a person with the virus, pre-surgical clearance or employment testing requirements.
Patients seeking COVID-19 testing can register online at www.velocityuc.com.
