COVID-19 Testing

drive-up covid-19 testing

Delta Direct Care currently offers drive-up COVID-19 drive-up tests:

  1. Molecular NaaT Test: This molecular test (also called PCR test, viral RNA, nuecleic acid test) use a deep nasal swab and will have fewer false negative results than other diagnostic tests or samples from throat swabs or saliva. It is consider the most reliable however must be processed at the lab and can take anywhere from 3 – 14 days depending on volume of tests.


  2. BD Veritor™ Rapid Antigen Test: This test uses a nasal or throat swab and test antigens. Similar to a strep or pregnancy test, false negative results tend to occur more often with antigen tests than with molecular tests. As with the molecular test, the false positive rate of antigen testing should be close to zero.


WHO: Anyone can be tested — DDC Members or Non. We DO NOT charge an additional appointment  fee (like many clinics). Our costs are for the test only. 

HOW: Both tests are done by appointment via drive-up. 

WHERE: We will meet you (in our PPE gear) in the parking of our Vancouver location and collect the nasal sample.

WHEN: We can accommodate many same-day appointments. Simply call (360) 999-5138 to schedule a date and time.
