COVID-19 Tests and Treatment

Ally Medical conducts COVID-19 testing and treatments as part of emergency room evaluations, based on best practice clinical protocols. Those seeking care at Ally Medical will be subject to emergency room billing practices.
  • We are NOT a routine COVID-19 testing center.
  • We are NOT a Monoclonal Antibody infusion site.
  • We are NOT a COVID-19 vaccination site.

Our locations have the ability to perform both rapid antigen and rapid COVID-19 RT-PCR which return results in 60 minutes or less. We also have the ability to send out PCR tests to a commercial laboratory with most results returning within 48 hours. PT-PCR is the most widely used test to determine if you have the specific genetic material for the virus that causes COVID-19. Because this is the most accurate way to test for COVID-19, our physician will determine which test is best for your current health needs.

For patients who test positive for COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe disease, we can give antibody infusions to help decrease the chance of becoming seriously ill. Monoclonal antibodies help prevent the virus from entering your cells and have been proven to both lower your risk of hospitalization as well as reduce the chance of getting those sick around you. The FDA has created guidelines and inclusion criteria for this emergency-use-authorized medication. Please call our facility to see if you may be a candidate for this antibody infusion.

We are an emergency medical facility, and we can take care of patients concerned about severe COVID-19 symptoms, such as chest pain or difficulty breathing. If you have these symptoms, please call 911 or seek help immediately at the nearest emergency room, whether it is an Ally Medical Emergency Room or another emergency room.

If you need a routine COVID-19 test, please visit a community testing site. Often times these sites will provide tests free of charge. 

If you are not sure whether you should come to an Ally Medical ER for a COVID-19 test, feel free to call any of our locations with questions.
