CareNow is proud to announce the launch of rapid testing for COVID-19 at all Northern Virginia locations, providing accurate results that are faster and more convenient for patients. A nationwide surge for COVID-19 testing has led to widespread delays in turnaround times for test results, frustrating many patients across the country. This new rapid testing option provides patients with results in minutes.
“We aim to deliver safe, accurate and convenient care options to our communities,” says Dr. Malak Isaac, market medical director for CareNow. “Providing results for patients before they are checked out of our urgent care facilities will alleviate uncertainty and help them get back to their everyday lives.”
In an effort to keep our colleagues and patients safe, patients are encouraged to check-in online to reduce risk of exposure and to maintain social distancing. We have also enhanced our safety protections and infection prevention measures to keep patients and visitors safe while in our clinics:
- Limiting patient companions
- Cleaning patient areas
- Screening patients and visitors
- Practicing social distancing
- Applying CDC guidelines
- Web and car check-in
