What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a potentially severe infection that develops from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strain. While most strains of coronavirus aren’t serious threats to humans, COVID-19 infections have proven to be critical in many cases.

How can I tell if I have COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a novel (new) coronavirus infection, so it can be difficult to pinpoint the warning signs. However, some of the most common COVID-19 symptoms that people experience include:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle aches
  • Congestion
  • Fatigue

COVID-19 is primarily a respiratory infection. Without proper treatment, it can lead to other serious illnesses, such as pneumonia. That’s why it’s important to get tested as soon as you experience any of the above symptoms.

What is at-home COVID-19 testing?

At-home COVID-19 testing allows you to test for the infection without exposing yourself to anybody outside of your home. This limits the potential spread of COVID-19 and allows you to detect the infection in a safe, comfortable environment.

With UrgentMed’s step-by-step guide, you can perform the test via telemedicine services. Once you receive your collection kit and book a telemedicine visit, your provider guides you through the nasal swab test.

First, wash your hands, take the kit out of the package, and set it down on a clean surface. When you remove the swab from its packaging, avoid touching the swab applicator below the molded breakpoint. Slightly tilt your head backward and gently insert the swab into your nostril. Rub and roll the swab three times before removing it. Repeat these steps on the second nostril for the most accurate results.

The kit provides you with a sterile vial to store the swab for testing. Once you verify and sign a consent form and prepare the sample for shipment, you can ship it via UPS for testing.

What are the benefits of at-home COVID-19 testing?

At-home COVID-19 testing gives you a convenient opportunity to test for this potentially dangerous infection without exposing yourself or others in your community to the virus. 

Additionally, at-home testing allows you to receive an accurate diagnosis, even if you’re wrestling with troubling symptoms that make it difficult to leave the house.
