When you have COVID symptoms, you need answers.

We Offer Two Options For Same-Day COVID Testing

PCR Test

PCR tests are the gold standard for detecting COVID-19. We offer same-day PCR test results, which allows you to get answers several days earlier than you would at other testing centers.

We use the Accula SARS-Co-V-2 and Cue PCR tests at our clinic. Both tests use a nasal mid-turbinate swab specimen collected from patients. Anterior nasal sampling is less invasive than the traditional nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs used at most testing centers, yet are believed to be every bit as accurate.

COVID of Chicago is a new clinic, dedicated to pandemic response. As such, we are not in-network with any insurance providers at this time. All COVID-19 testing is self-pay only.

Same-day PCR testing costs $375. This covers the test itself, the clinicians time, the lab cost, and expedited lab processing.

COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test

The COVID-19 rapid antigen test offers a more affordable choice for those who need answers immediately. This test can be read at our on-site lab and texted to you within 30 to 60 minutes.

We use the Sofia SARS-CoV-2 antigen FIA by Quidel test and the BD Veritor antigen test.

These tests look for the presence of the COVID-19 RNA.
