PCR Testing is available at El Paso ER. Resutls are available within a hour. PCR Testing is very accurate at picking up COVID-19 even in the absence of symptoms.
At home tests are useful if you have very mild symptoms or are not at risk of severe infection. If you're unsure, just give us a call and we can walk you through the process.
There are two oral medications approved for outpatient treatment of COVID-19. Both are extremelty effective if taken within 5 days of symptom onset. The earlier the medications are started, the more effective they tend to be.
Please call us or visit to see if you are a candidate for one of these treatments. This will depend on your medical history, age, pregnancy status and severity of infection.
