We know you may be concerned about news of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and its implications for the health of you and your loved ones. Your safety and well-being are our top priority. We want to reassure you that you are under no additional exposure risk when seeking care at our hospital, clinics or Urgent Care facilities. We are taking all necessary measures and precautions to protect the safety of our patients and staff, and patients should feel confident in making and keeping their appointments.
It’s best to be tested at the first sign of symptoms.
In addition to the PCR Covid Test, Valley Regional Hospital now offers the BinaxNOW COVID–19 Ag Card, a rapid antigen test for detecting active infections of COVID-19. The rapid antigen test is only available in our Emergency Room, Urgent Care and Primary Care Offices and can only be used with individuals who are experiencing active COVID-19 symptoms with an onset within the past seven days. This test is not reliable in detecting the virus in asymptomatic patients. The test that a patient receives will be determined by the testing provider after consultation with the patient. Please note, the rapid antigen test is no longer available at our Covid Testing Site. In order to allow us to continue to offer patients the right care, at the right time, in the right place, we encourage individuals to seek care in the setting best designed to meet their needs.
