The sample will be collected and you will be advised to self-quarantine for 14 days at home or until results come back which usually can take 3 to 5 business days.
We collect the samples and send them to Lab corp or Quest for testing.
Rapid tests are usually performed using a nasal or throat swab, and the results can be available within 15-30 minutes. Some rapid tests can also be performed using saliva samples, which can be more convenient and less uncomfortable for the person being tested.
Antibody tests: The presence of antibodies in the blood are detected. They indicate past infection. They are typically done using a blood sample.
We offer quick & affordable PCR testing 7 days a week, whether you need a COVID-19 test for travel or because you aren’t feeling well. If you need or wish to get tested for COVID-19, simply schedule an appointment below, selecting the location & time you want to come in. Most insurance policies are accepted to pay the cost of the test.
Please plan a telehealth appointment to speak with a healthcare physician if you have any medical-related questions or concerns prior to the test. Copays for telehealth services are also being waived by the majority of insurance companies. For more information & Covid Testing in Fontana contact West Point Medical Center today!

The CDC – Center for Disease Control advises anyone who has been confirmed to have COVID-19 or is being tested for the virus to stay at home & avoid going to public places such as work or school. These people should also avoid utilizing public transportation, including ride-sharing services & taxis until a healthcare practitioner clears them for regular exercise.
People who have actually come into contact with persons known to have contracted COVID-19 or who are being assessed for a probable COVID-19 infection should monitor their symptoms to prevent the virus from spreading. While the CDC has published a list of probable symptoms, including fever, shortness of breath, & cough, it’s crucial to note that not everyone will suffer the same symptoms, and some asymptomatic will experience none at all.
1. When is RT-PCR done?
COVID-19 PCR testing (COVID-19 swab test) is for individuals who have COVID-19 symptoms or feel that their cough, cold, or fever type of symptoms may be due to Covid-19.
2. How can past COVID infections be detected?
Serology testing, also known as coronavirus antibody testing, can check for different types of antibodies developed after exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. This type of COVID-19 test is for individuals who think they may have previously had COVID-19 and do not currently have symptoms. It usually takes 10 days to 2 weeks to develop antibodies, so it is recommended to perform this test at least 10-12 days after the illness.
3. When to get tested for COVID-19?
Even if you are completely vaccinated, you may wish to get tested for COVID-19 in a variety of conditions. If you are having symptoms – we recommend that you be tested at one of our convenient locations. Typical symptoms include:
Symptoms generally develop 2-14 days after being exposed to a COVID-positive individual. Even if you do not have any symptoms, you should consider being tested if you have had known exposure to someone with COVID-19.
4. What is the difference between the PCR and the rapid molecular COVID-19 test?
By amplifying the genetic code, both the PCR as well as the rapid Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 tests may identify SARS-CoV2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) with greater sensitivity than antigen testing. Although both are nucleic acid amplification tests (“NAAT”), the distinction between PCR and Abbott ID NOW is the method used to produce amplification. Temperature cycling is used in PCR to make high-fidelity copies of genetic targets. PCR is the gold-standard method for amplifying genetic information. However, it is more time-consuming than another testing. Isothermal molecular amplification tests (“IMAT”), such as Abbott’s ID NOW, on the other hand, may get a comparable result at a single temperature. This approach is somewhat faster because there is no need to wait for temperature fluctuations.
5. Does my insurance cover the COVID-19 test?
The COVID-19 PCR & Antibody test is usually covered by most insurance, but we won’t know for sure until we run the insurance at the time of the appointment. This will be done at the start of your visit.
6. Can I get a COVID-19 test for travel clearance?
Yes, COVID-19 testing is available for a forthcoming trip. Many destinations require a COVID-19 test that is negative within 72 hours of departure. Before flying, a quick COVID-19 test is recommended, with results in 15-50 minutes depending on the type of test you obtain. Please remember that some destinations may require a PCR test, which we also provide at all of our locations. It is the patient’s responsibility to learn the testing criteria for their destination.
If you previously had a positive COVID-19 test result, we recommend that you wait for 14 days from the actual date of your last positive test before testing again. If your previous COVID-19 test report was negative, you could arrange another clinical examination & test at any of our locations, including Covid Testing Fontana. You can also use our Virtual Visit service for a remote evaluation.
