Same & next day results for parts of Virginia and MD, Next day for rest of U.S.
The RT-PCR test for COVID-19 is the most accurate and reliable test for diagnosing COVID-19.
The RT-PCR test is also sometimes called a molecular test and detects genetic material of the virus using a lab technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
We partner with high complexity labs for accurate and reliable COVID-19 PCR test. If you choose same day results and test in the morning your results will be back the same day (within 12-14 hours). Next day testing provides results within 24-36 hours or the next day no later than 7pm. So for example, if you test on Monday your results would be back on Tuesday no later than 7pm.
A positive test means you likely have COVID-19. A negative test means you probably did not have COVID-19 at the time of the test. This test is best used at day 3-7 days of symptoms if you are symptomatic. For travel screening please coordinate timing of test and your results with your flight appropriately. For medical questions about results of your test, please contact your primary care physician. More information about our test and other FAQs here
First, thank you for booking with us! Second you will receive an email with a few questions regarding where to test you, whether you need to include passport information on your results.

For some locations we mail you a test kit for our mobile phlebotomist to use but we will inform you if that is necessary.
