Screening and Testing

To help serve the community’s needs, BayCare provides access to various testing options at Urgent Care clinics throughout the Tampa Bay area. 

Remember to only go to our Emergency Rooms if you have an emergency – our ERs are NOT doing public testing.

For Symptomatic Patients

BayCare Urgent Care clinics offer traditional PCR testing in conjunction with an urgent care visit and evaluation by a health care provider. The PCR test is sent to BayCare Laboratories for processing, and patients can receive results within 12 to 48 hours. Find an urgent care near you.  

BayCare Urgent Care also can perform a rapid antigen test in combination with an urgent care visit and evaluation by a health care provider. The test is for symptomatic individuals within the first 7 days of symptom onset. Patients receive results in 15 minutes. 

For Asymptomatic Individuals

BayCare offers an effective and reliable rapid PCR test that can detect COVID-19 in 30 minutes. The test is available by appointment at thirteen BayCare Urgent Care locations to asymptomatic people wishing to confirm they are negative for COVID-19, such as before traveling. The test is not billed to insurance but is available as a self-pay service at a cost of $150. Urgent Care centers offering Rapid COVID-19 PCR Tests

Getting your test done in the emergency room will result in additional facility and physician fees. If you think you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, the online screening tool helps direct you to the right care and resources.

Select Urgent Care Locations Offer Rapid COVID-19 PCR Testing for Asymptomatic Individuals

As many testing sites across Tampa Bay beginning to close, select BayCare’s Urgent Care centers are offering an effective and reliable rapid test that can detect both COVID-19 and the flu. The test is available to asymptomatic people wishing to confirm they are negative for COVID-19 before traveling or visiting loved ones.  This PCR (LIAT) test is approved for most airlines and most travel destinations, however, it is the patient’s responsibility to check the regulations and test requirements needed for your destination.*

This service will offer a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) that detects both flu and COVID-19 with the same reliability as a lab-based test. Patients may receive test results in 30 minutes on-site.  Due to limited supply, the RT-PCR will be available on a reservation basis. Reservations can be made using the Save Your Spot tool. The test will not be billed to insurance but will be available as a self-pay service at a cost of $150.

*At this time, this testing isn't approved for travel to Hawaii.
