 Physicians Immediate Care is the only urgent care provider in Illinois with Abbot ID Now COVID-19 tests, which provide results in as little as five minutes for next to immediate testing results. 

The new testing procedure works when a swab taken from a person’s nose or throat mixed into a chemical solution, which is analyzed and detects the COVID-19 genome within minutes.  Abbott labs received FDA approval in late March and began shipping units shortly after.  To date, nearly half a million units have shipped in the U.S.
