COVID-19 Testing Hicksville (Long Island)
COVID-19 Test Now Available at Hicksville (Long Island)
COVID-19 testing for coronavirus is now available at Statcare in Hicksville (Long Island). Everyone in New York, including Hicksville, should assume they have already been exposed to coronavirus or have come into close contact with someone who has no symptoms but is a carrier.
People who have been taking public transport may have come into contact with contaminated surfaces. Those who often have to head outdoors for work or errands may have been within close range with someone who is already infected.
It is recommended for everyone to stay home and avoid crowded areas. If you must go out, remember to wash your hands frequently, wear a mask, and maintain a social distance of 6 feet.
Our urgent care center providers believe that only with COVID testing of symptomatic coronavirus cases, prescribing isolation, and 14 days of quarantine to those who test positive can one control this pandemic and stop the spread of the virus. The New York State Department of Health as well as the New York City government has issued public health guidelines to reduce positivity rates of COVID-19 tests done by healthcare professionals.
If you have a family member who has lung disease, is older than 60 years, or has an immunocompromised state, you may want to screen yourself with our COVID-19 test for coronavirus. If the nasal swab generates a negative test result, a PCR test is sent out to the lab for confirmation.
COVID-19 Test Near Me at Hicksville (Long Island) Urgent Care
We perform COVID-19 testing as per the CDC and local health department guidelines. But not everyone needs to be tested for it. Once you arrive at the COVID-19 testing site, our health care providers will determine if you need one.
We encourage everyone to pre-register online or call to set an appointment rather than walk-in to our Hicksville road test site directly. Please follow the process as this helps to limit the exposure of our staff and keeps every patient safe and protected. We designed the process to avoid congestion in our office, reducing any health risk to the health care workers and patients.
