The COVID-19 coronavirus continues to be a threat here in California, and around the country. Due to how easily it spreads, and how many lives have been lost to the disease, it’s important to seek out COVID-19 testing in Pasadena if you suspect that you’re infected.
Getting tested safely can be difficult, but Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena is here to help you get the attention you need.
Know the Symptoms
One of the challenges with COVID-19 is that its symptoms are often the same as many other colds and cases of flu. In general, its symptoms can include:
- High fever
- Dry coughs
- Muscle fatigue or pains
- Sore throat
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain
- Discoloration of fingers or toes
- Loss of a sense of smell or taste
Even if you have some of these symptoms, it does not necessarily mean you have the coronavirus. That is why testing is so important!
Keeping Everyone Safe If You Need COVID-19 Testing Near You in Pasadena
Advanced Urgent Care wants to make sure our COVID testing in Pasadena is as safe as possible. That’s why we work to limit your exposure to other people until we can properly assess the situation.
If you think you might have symptoms of the coronavirus, you should first reach out to our medical team. Do not go directly to the clinic. Call or email our front desk to discuss your symptoms. If necessary, we may also schedule a video-conferencing call using our virtual doctor visit service, to get more detailed information from you.
If your doctor believes that you need COVID-19 testing, you’ll be directed to visit the clinic. However, you should stay in your car. We offer curbside service. We’ll come to you, wearing proper safety gear, and collect the samples we need to perform the testing.
Then you should go straight home. Try not to come into contact with anyone else. We will get back in touch with you once the test results are in. This will generally take a few days, but we will contact you just as soon as they arrive. If you need prescriptions, we’ll direct you to come back to the clinic, and we’ll provide your medications via our curbside service as well.
