COVID Testing Center
Dr. Anthony Bartolo, father of student at MVES, has opened a new Covid testing center on Windy Hill road in Marietta. They are a CLIA Certified testing center and do rapid Covid 19 testing with results in as little as 10 minutes.  

3 Different Options:
1. 10 min Rapid Finger prick test $60- This test is excellent for someone with symptoms and lets you know if it is active Covid and or if you have the Antibodies.
2. 15 Min Rapid Nasal Test $150- This test can identify if you have been in the presence of someone with Covid-19 but you have not yet begun to show symptoms. It of course will then tell us if you have active Covid and or Antibodies.
3.  Nasal PCR Test $179. - This test will do the same as the above test but has a 5-7 day response as it has to be sent to the lab. (This test is the most what airlines would require for international travel)

We also do the following testing:
4.  Rapid Flu $60. - This is a Nasal swab that has results in 10 minutes and is excellent for someone that has symptoms but has tested negative for Covid-19
5. Rapid Strep $60. - This is a Nasal swab that has results in 10 minutes and is excellent for someone that has symptoms along with a sore throat but has tested negative for Covid-19
