Now offered by Alliance Xpress Urgent Care

With cold and flu season upon us, it can be hard to tell if your symptoms might be a cold, the flu, strep or COVID-19!

If you are experiencing upper respiratory symptoms such as cough/cold, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath and or sore throat and headache please come in today for a full evaluation from one of our providers at either of our locations in Covington or Dublin.

We can test you for Strep, Flu, and even COVID-19.


Do I need an appointment to be tested?
No. Appointments aren’t needed.

What is the test like?
Our practitioners will give you a full assessment for your symptoms and determine if testing is needed. COVID and Flu tests are done with a nasal swab, and the Strep test is done with a throat swab. The procedures are not painful, but may be uncomfortable. 

When will I get results?
Our providers will determine whether a Rapid COVID test or lab COVID test is appropriate for our patients. Rapid COVID testing results are available within 15 minutes, and lab results will be provided in approximately 36-72 hours. Strep and Flu results will be available in-office before you leave.

Does insurance cover testing?
Yes. Tests should be covered by major insurance providers.
