A rapid coronavirus test that can give results in approximately 15 minutes is now accessible to Philadelphia area residents.

A new healthcare start-up, “15 Minute Testing,” located at the IATSE Local 8 Stagehands parking lot at 2401 South Swanson Street is open daily. The 15-minute testing procedure is a nasal swab test that is self-administered. Lab results are then provided confidentially within 15 minutes. A smart phone is required to receive the result.

Testing services cost $85, and are reimbursable by most healthcare plans.

Please check with your provider beforehand. For information, visit 15minutetestingphilly.com
