Diagnostic testing for COVID-19 is performed by taking a sample via a gentle swab of the lower nasal cavity. The process takes only a few moments and is pain-free to the patient. The swab is then taken to our lab where it is processed and analyzed, with results returned to the patient in 1-3 days depending on current capacity of the lab and the number of tests ordered that day.
The staff members administering the test will be in full PPE, including gowns, gloves, face shields and masks for both yours and their protection. Please wear a mask when visiting our center for COVID-19 diagnostic testing.
