Urgent Care on Del Mar provides nasopharyngeal swab testing through its partnership with CPL labs. The urgent care operates a drive-up swab clinic from Monday – Friday between the hours of 8 AM to 10 AM.
The parking lot area with swab testing parking spaces can house 10 cars at a time, so appointments are spaced out accordingly. The patients are pre-screened by telephone the evening before the swab is obtained. When they arrive at the swab clinic, identity is verified with photo ID.. Patients are screened according to CDC criteria. If a patient has any exposure or suspected exposure or is in a high risk category, the test is ordered during the telephonic screening conducted by a Nurse Practitioner. Swabs are obtained by RNs or certified MAs.
