COVID-19 Diagnostic Test
The COVID-19 diagnostic test allows you to understand if you have an active infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19). This type of COVID-19 test is for individuals who think they were directly exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the past 14 days.
Common Symptoms for COVID-19
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after an infection and may be mild or severe. People may have COVID-19 if they have: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
Turnaround time for the COVID-19 diagnostic test is typically 1-2 days or 12-24 hours from the time the specimen is received in our laboratory. We strive to turn around test as fast as possible and the turn around may vary due to high demand. Travel testing are resulted same day.
