COVID-19 Testing Information

Clinica Pastor currently offers COVID-19 testing services in our Chamblee, Jonesboro, Acworth, Sugar Hill, and Mableton locations. If you are experiencing COVID 19-symptoms, or suspect that you have been exposed to the coronavirus, call and make an appointment to be tested at the nearest location.

COVID-19 Symptoms

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms.

Appointment Information

We offer the PCR molecular nasal test, which is the only true COVID-19 test. The PCR nasal test is the most accurate in comparison to rapid antigen tests or antibody blood tests. After you call to book your appointment, please follow the following precautions:

  • Arrive at your scheduled location during your timeslot
  • Wash your hands before entering the location
  • Wear a mask to enter the location
  • You will be asked to isolate yourself in a separate room once inside of the facility

If you test positive, know what protective steps to take to protect yourself by visiting the CDC website. If you test negative, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. The test result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing. Continue to take steps to protect yourself.

When to Seek Emergency Medical Attention

Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
