Screening & Testing
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.
As an alternative to in-person
screenings, we are offering virtual
telehealth screenings to the community
via Care Anywhere. Should the need arise,
your family, friends and neighbors can
engage a JMC provider for a virtual
consultation – all from the comfort of
your home using a smartphone or
Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
What You Need
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
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
a screening over the phone and direct you to a test site if you are symptomatic.
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.
How Can I
In My Home?
If you test positive for coronavirus or you are sick with symptoms that you suspect could be coronavirus, take steps to self-isolate in your home.
According to CDC recommendations, household members should, as much as possible, separate from other people and pets.
Use a different bedroom and bathroom if available. Shared spaces should have good airflow, such as with an opened window. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth. If you must be around other people, wear a facemask or cloth face covering over your nose and mouth.
Clean all high-touch surfaces everyday. Caregivers should only clean your bedroom and bathroom on an as-needed basis. Caregiver should wear a mask and wait as long as possible after the sick person has used the bathroom.
