What Is COVID-19?
The coronavirus disease 2019, more commonly known as COVID-19, is a highly contagious virus that can cause a wide variety of respiratory symptoms, some of which may resemble symptoms of the flu. Symptoms may be mild or severe, and some people may contract the disease but never experience symptoms. Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that people 65 and older and those with underlying health problems are at the highest risk of becoming seriously ill, younger people with no known medical issues have succumbed to the disease.
Coronavirus Testing at Springfield Urgent Care
At Springfield Urgent Care, we want to make it as convenient as possible for our patients to receive testing for COVID-19 while also looking out for their safety, as well as the safety of our patients with other health concerns. Therefore, we offer a convenient and simple procedure for drive-up coronavirus testing at our urgent care clinic in Clarkston:
- When you’re ready for testing, park your vehicle in one of the designated COVID-19 testing spaces outside our facility.
- Call (248) 942-5888 to alert our staff that you’ve arrived and to briefly discuss your symptoms.
- One of our clinical assistants will come out to your vehicle to check your vital signs and administer nasal swab testing for the coronavirus, followed by a visit from our board-certified physician or one of our certified physician assistants who will assess your lung function and provide an appropriate treatment plan.
As with our other services, you can reserve your spot in line for coronavirus testing through our convenient online check-in service. We also offer virtual consultations if you’d like to discuss your symptoms with one of our highly qualified medical professionals before making a decision about testing. If you’re not experiencing symptoms but you’re worried that you may have contracted the virus and could put others at risk, we can also provide serology testing for coronavirus (a blood draw test to detect the presence of antibodies) that can detect previous exposure to the virus.
