Viral Testing Information

Viral tests check samples from your respiratory system (such as swabs of the inside of the nose) to tell you if you currently have an infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Some tests are point-of-care tests, meaning results may be available at the testing site in less than an hour. Other tests must be sent to a laboratory to analyze, a process that takes 1-2 days once received by the lab.

For patients:  Talk to your healthcare provider.  Stay home and call your health care provider for advice if you are feeling sick.

Testing sites may require pre-registration, or a doctor’s prescription, in order for a test to be taken. Check with the testing site before going to one of the testing locations.  Some commercial testing sites are able to provide a prescription, as well as perform the diagnostic test on-site.
