Springfield Urgent Care’s walk-in clinic near Hamburg offers coronavirus testing options between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. every day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday.

Our Coronavirus Testing Options
For those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including coughing, fever, and new loss of taste or smell, we offer three types of testing designed to identify an active coronavirus infection. All of these tests are also appropriate for people who have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19:
Rapid COVID-19 Testing
Two types of rapid COVID-19 tests are available from Springfield Urgent Care, and both of them involve nasal swab sampling. The rapid antigen test is designed to detect proteins that are associated with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The Abbott ID NOW rapid molecular test looks for RNA associated with the virus. No matter which of these rapid tests you receive, the results will typically be available within minutes.
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Testing
This COVID-19 test also requires nasal swab sampling, but it identifies an active infection by detecting the genetic material associated with SARS-CoV-2. Widely considered the gold standard in coronavirus testing, the results take a little longer than those of the rapid tests. But when you’re tested at Springfield Urgent Care, you’ll have results by the next day.
For those who aren’t experiencing COVID-19 symptoms but think they may have had the disease and recovered, we offer antibody serology testing, which is a blood draw test that detects the presence of antibodies associated with COVID-19. A positive result may indicate that you have some level of immunity to the disease.
