What are the Signs that You Might Need COVID Testing in Saint Petersburg?

The Coronavirus, also known as COVID, has increased worries over illness in 2020 and beyond. With new variants being discovered at alarming rates, and vaccines rolling out to combat the worst of the virus, there’s cause for concern among everyday people. However, some people are confused about when they need COVID testing in Saint Petersburg and surrounding cities.

Covid has a long list of possible symptoms, most of which mimic a bad cold or influenza. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Moderate to high fever
  • Dry cough with throat aches or soreness
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Body aches and severe headache or migraine

Less common symptoms of the Coronavirus include:

  • Discoloration or blue tinges to toes and fingers
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sensitivity to heat or bright lights

In extreme cases, symptoms could include shortness of breath or raspy, wet coughs, loss of speech or movement, inability to form coherent words or thoughts, and chest pain or intense upper body pressure.

When Do COVID Symptoms Become Prevalent?

Most people develop COVID symptoms within 2 to 14 days of viral infection. The best thing you can do is wear a mask, wash your hands regularly, practice social distance of at least 6-feet from anyone else, and avoid traveling or large crowds when possible.

If you’ve traveled or believe you may have been around an infected person, you should isolate yourself for up to two weeks. This is ample time to determine whether the virus is in your system or not.

We Love Our Customers!

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.

Very warm , inviting professional staff..

Love the people there and how they listen to me.. their office is always clean and neat the staff is really nice and lovely

I love the staff and I love how they listen to me when I have a problem.

I have been a patient at Dr Kaszubas’s office for several years now. I cannot express how good it feels to have found an office where the nurses and staff just “get it” and know what they’re doing. They always take the time to listen, which is something you don’t see much of anymore. Denise, Sarah, and the P.A. C.C...outstanding! Not only are they incredibly friendly, but knowledgeable in everything they do. If they don’t have the answer to something, they will have it for you within minutes. Five stars all the way! I am extremely happy with them.

Dr. Kaszuba & his staff always go above & beyond. A+
