Our COVID-19 Testing Process

Swabs taken

Our doctor or nurse will collect samples from inside your nose and throat using swabs. They will be wearing personal protective equipment to keep you and them safe.

The samples are then sent to the nearest laboratory that can test for COVID-19. The result may take several days.

After the test, if you aren’t really sick, you must stay home to self-isolate while you wait for the test results.
