No Appointment Needed for Coronavirus Testing
Sacred Heart ER is ready to help you during the public health crisis that is the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, persistent cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and a sudden loss of taste or smell, we can screen you for the virus.
We offer PCR and rapid antigen COVID-19 virus testing in Houston at Sacred Heart ER. The test diagnoses active COVID-19 infections with an anterior nasal swab as a means of collecting a nasal secretion specimen from the back of your nose. If your antigen test is negative but you still have COVID-19 symptoms, a PCR test is recommended. If your antigen test comes back positive, you should isolate/quarantine per the CDC instructions to prevent spreading the infection.
For PCR tests, your specimen is sent to a certified laboratory where it is analyzed for the virus and we will notify you of your test results as soon as possible, which may take one to three business days.
If your COVID-19 symptoms are severe, seek emergency treatment by calling 9-1-1 for transportation to the hospital via ambulance or go to your nearest emergency department.
