COVID-19 Testing in Flagstaff, AZ
As of last week, there are now two forms of testing for COVID-19.
Coconino County started performing ‘testing blitzes’ on Saturdays in May. These are events in which 100-200 symptomatic or asymptomatic people can be tested via the nasal swab in order to determine how widespread COVID-19 is in our community. This does not require an order from a provider.
As of Monday (4/27/2020), Sonora Quest has started performing antibody testing. This test requires a provider order for a blood draw. Antibody testing should be performed at least 10-14 days after a potential COVID-19 exposure or onset of symptoms. Antibody testing results may show if you have been exposed to the virus, but it does not tell you whether you are currently contagious or have protective immunity.
If you are currently symptomatic, we recommend that you contact your provider for an order for the nasal swab. If asymptomatic, we can provide an order for the antibody testing.
Please call to schedule a telemedicine visit with our office to discuss testing options! 928-774-2788

Hopefully this information may help offer some guidance regarding the testing issues and some direction for you to consider personal testing. There are two types of COVID 19 tests available at this time, the molecular testing for active disease and the antibody test for the exposure to or recovery from the disease. The molecular test looks for active disease. This involves taking a cotton swab of one nostril for about a five second duration. This sample is then sent to the lab to undergo a polymerase chain reaction (PCR). ...
