This test is a nasal swab but it’s not the more painful version people were getting tested with weeks ago. Most patients report only mild discomfort with this Covid-19 test.
These pop-up testing sites are testing people 18-and-older with or without symptoms and those under-18 with symptoms. Patients can also be tested in any Healthy Connections clinic both for Covid-19 and Covid-19 antibodies. Call 888-710-8220 for clinic appointments at locations in Little Rock, Hot Springs, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Mount Ida, Mena, and De Queen.
