COVID Frequently Asked Questions

AFC Urgent Care Worcester offers rapid COVID tests and antibody tests to all patients, no appointment required.

What are symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms of COVID can range from person to person. It may react with people differently, and those with lowered immune systems should take caution. Signs of COVID can include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough or shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Fatigue
  • Headache

Can I get COVID if someone doesn’t have symptoms?

COVID can be transferred to others, even if someone is asymptomatic. COVID is spread through respiratory droplets, so it is possible to catch it from being too close to someone who is infected. Be sure to continue wearing a mask when around others and maintain a distance of six feet. 

Is there treatment for COVID?

There is currently no treatment for COVID-19. Doctors can help recommend treatment options for patients depending on their symptoms. It’s important to monitor symptoms, as some cases can become severe.
