COVID-19 Testing in Omaha
TotalWellness, a national wellness company, is offering COVID-19 testing for the Omaha community. Appointments are available Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Testing will be held at 9324 H Court, Omaha NE 68127 in the outside parking lot. We are accepting patients nine years and older.
TotalWellness is utilizing the Sofia 2 for our COVID-19 testing service. Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA is a rapid point-of-care test for the detection of COVID-19. These diagnostic tests quickly detect fragments of proteins found on or within the virus by testing samples collected from the nasal cavity using swabs. The same approach is used in rapid tests for flu, strep throat and other infections that are run at the doctor’s office. It has received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the COVID-19 diagnosis. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but are not as sensitive as molecular PCR tests. This test has 96.7% sensitivity and 100% specificity.
Each test takes approximately five minutes. The sample is collected with a nasal swab, which is inserted one inch into the nose. Results are available in 20 minutes.
When you arrive, please look for the green signs and park in one of our designated COVID-19 Testing parking spots, which are numbered 1-15. We ask all patients to bring their signed consent form, wear a mask and practice social distancing while waiting for their appointment. Patients will remain in vehicle for test.
Starting September 10, we will also be offering curbside flu shots.
If you are a local business that’s interested in purchasing tests for your employees, we have a voucher program that is available. Contact our sales team for more information.
Out of pocket cost: $80
We will take cash payment onsite or you can pay online via credit card.

COVID-19 Tests Explained
There are three types of tests available for COVID-19: polymerase chain reaction (PCR), antigen, and antibody (serology) testing. PCR and antigen tests detect whether a person is currently infected, and serology detects whether a person had an infection in the past.
Antigen tests look for pieces of proteins that make up the SARS-CoV-2 virus to determine if the person has an active infection.
PCR tests look for pieces of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in the nose, throat, or other areas in the respiratory tract to determine if the person has an active infection. We also offer a saliva-based COVID-19 RT-PCR test that can be self-collected at home. Click here for more information.
Serology looks for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in the blood to determine if there was a past infection. Typically done through a blood test. TotalWellness does not offer antibody testing.
Usual and customary fee is $160 for COVID-19 Antigen Testing.
