COVID-19 Testing FAQ
What are the different types of COVID-19 tests available?
There are two main types of COVID-19 tests: diagnostic tests and antibody tests. Diagnostic tests, such as PCR and antigen tests, can detect whether you currently have the virus. Antibody tests, on the other hand, can tell you whether you have had the virus in the past.
How accurate are COVID-19 tests?
The accuracy of COVID-19 tests can vary depending on the type of test and how it is administered. PCR tests are generally considered the gold standard for COVID-19 diagnosis and have a high level of accuracy. Antigen tests are less accurate but can provide faster results. It's important to follow up with your healthcare provider if you have symptoms of COVID-19, even if your test result is negative.
Can I get a COVID-19 test if I don't have symptoms?
Many clinics and testing centers will offer COVID-19 tests to individuals who do not have symptoms. However, some locations may prioritize testing for those who are experiencing symptoms or who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.
How long does it take to get COVID-19 test results?
The turnaround time for COVID-19 test results can vary depending on the type of test and the laboratory processing the sample. PCR tests can take anywhere from 1-5 days to get results, while antigen tests may provide results within 15-30 minutes.
What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?
If you test positive for COVID-19, it's important to self-isolate and follow the guidance of your healthcare provider. You should also notify any close contacts you may have had so they can take appropriate precautions. Depending on your symptoms and level of risk, your healthcare provider may recommend further testing or treatment.
