COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE – Southern Arizona Urgent Care

(TUCSON, AZ.): All SAUC staff and locations are working diligently to bring you the most essential information and care in the wake of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Although widespread testing is still not yet available, Southern Arizona Urgent Care is striving to bridge this gap by offering coronavirus testing at ALL NINE of our Tucson area locations.

Testing Priority: Individuals should only get tested when applicable, based on the CDC guidelines of presentation of COVID-19 symptoms.

Testing Process: For social distancing reasons, our testing is drive-up only. Testing is available at our designated testing sites. 

Cost of Testing: $150

Testing Times: 7am – 7 pm

Test Results: Test results are usually conclusive more quickly from the antibody test than from the swab. Both results should be available within just a few days, but this will vary by patient.

Other Info: We encourage all patients to schedule an appointment and register via ZipPass for all types of appointments, including coronavirus testing. This will save on in-clinic registration time.

It is still important to remember to:

        • Wash your hands often, with warm water and soap.
        • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth.
        • Practice social distancing, wear a mask when possible.

Our thoughts are with all of the families and businesses throughout the Tucson community that have been affected by this virus.
