Feeling feverish? Have shortness of breath? Got a nasty cough that won’t go away? If you think you have come down with the coronavirus, you can easily get tested at Advance ER! This freestanding emergency room offers a Drive-Up assistance program that allows you to drive up, stay in your vehicle and let someone come to you to test for COVID-19.
“During this unprecedented time, Advance ER is doing everything possible to protect the patients and communities we serve,” according to their website. “We understand your concerns and we ultimately have one goal: to be prepared and ready for whatever is ahead.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to COVID-19: fever, cough, chest pain or shortness of breath. It shares similar symptoms to the common flu; however, recent studies suggest COVID-19 is more contagious and has a higher fatality rate.
Schedule an appointment online or call 214-494-8222 to schedule an appointment for COVID-19. Testing is by appointment only. With their advanced testing technology, they can administer tests directly from their clinic with a sample swab from a patient’s nose or throat to deliver results in 24-48 hours.
With that being said, Advance ER recommends that only patients with severe conditions, or those who’ve been in contact with someone who has the virus be tested. You can always call the office for further instructions.
