Process for the RT-PCR Covid-19 Test
What locations can I visit for COVID-19 tests?
COVID-19 testing is available at our Turnersville New Jersey Location by appointment only. COVID-19 tests begin with a telemedicine visit with one of our providers. This will allow a Dragonfly Health clinician to determine whether you meet the qualifications for a test. At the end of your telemedicine visit, you’ll receive a referral to come into our Turnersville location for coronavirus testing. We offer a drive-up swab test.
What should I do to prepare for my rapid test?
When you arrive at Dragonfly Health for a Covid-19 test, please make sure you are wearing a mask or protective face covering over your nose and mouth. This should only be lowered when asked by our clinical staff in order to collect the testing sample. The sample will be collected by taking a swab of your upper nasal cavity, which is processed on-site. The swab, which only takes a brief moment, is mildly uncomfortable and should not cause any pain. We will provide you with guidance on how to take the swab as well as all your needs inside a bag along with your instructions.
We are currently working on the ability to come to your home to test for covid-19 if you live in certain areas. Please call the office to inquire about that.
