Access to Care in the COVID-19 Era

If you are worried you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, here is how to get tested. Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care is also offering antibody tests to detect past exposure to the virus.

What Do I Do If I Feel Sick?

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, chills, cough or difficulty breathing. The CDC has also identified other symptoms that some people may experience, including fatigue, body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion and gastrointestinal upset.

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, you can schedule a telehealth consultation with a Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care provider using Care Anywhere or contact your primary care physician. With Care Anywhere, a provider will screen you for symptoms from the comfort of home and help determine if you need testing.

COVID-19 screenings and testing are also available at all Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care locations.

COVID-19 Testing: What You Need to Know

While the hospital is not a COVID-19 test site, all Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care locations offer nasal swab testing for COVID-19. The test, also called a viral test, only takes a few moments. The sample is sent to a lab for analysis, and results can typically be expected within a few days.

If you are sick and think you need to be tested, contact one of our Urgent Care locations and arrange to be seen. Our Urgent Care providers can meet you at your car, for car-side service.

Antibody Testing

Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care also offers antibody testing, which is used to detect past COVID-19 infections. Antibody testing looks for antibodies in the blood, which may indicate that you had the infection and have recovered.

Antibody tests are not used to diagnosis current COVID-19 infections, as it takes about one to three weeks for an individual who has had COVID-19 to develop antibodies. Experts are still working to determine the extent to which having COVID-19 antibodies provides immunity from future infections.
