How Long Does It Take For Me To Receive PCR Test Results?

COVID PCR Test results are most reliable COVID Tests and are covered by insurance with a doctor’s visit. Normally, COVID-19 PCR test results return in 2 to 3 days. During periods of high demand for COVID-19 testing, results may take longer. We use LabCorp to process our COVID-19 PCR tests, and the time it takes to get results changes daily. Our providers do their best to give you an estimate of when test results are expected, but a time for returned results cannot be guaranteed.

What Are The Symptoms Of The Coronavirus? How Long Do They Take To Appear?

This coronavirus shares many symptoms with the flu, a common cold, or a regular upper respiratory infection. According to the CDC, current COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This coronavirus, however, can develop severe complications including:

  • Fever of over 100.4F
  • Pneumonia
  • Sepsis
  • Death

There is no conclusive research to indicate how long it takes for symptoms to appear. It is generally accepted that they begin two to fourteen days after infection. Other sources suggest that some people who are infected may never display symptoms but remain contagious.


How Does Someone Become Infected From COVID-19?

Person to person transmission has been confirmed. It is believed that the virus travels on droplets that exit someone’s mouth when they cough. For this reason, face masks are highly recommended to be worn while outside. If you are infected but not showing symptoms, a mask will help contain droplets.
