FAQ

How long does it take to get results?

We estimate that those tested will receive results within 2-5 days.

However, this may be longer depending on test processing. Lab capacity has been extremely limited in the early days of state-wide testing, and that capacity is steadily increasing over time.

Consequently, please keep in mind that under periods of heavy volume results can be delayed and we thank you for your patience.

If you can not locate your result after 5 days kindly check the spam, or trash folders or your email. You should receive an email from bhm@labnotification.com when your results are available.

In case it has been over 7 days since your test and you have not received your results, please reach out to us at  Info@freecovidcheck.com for immediate escalation.

What are the differences between a PCR Test and A Rapid Test?

There are essentially two broad categories of testing:

  1. Antigen test (frequently referred to as a rapid test). This test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus. It can be done in a clinic, doctor’s office, or hospital. Turnaround time for results is usually very quick and in some cases, results can be reported within 15 minutes.
  2. PCR test. PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in SARS-CoV-2 detection. This test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. The test can be done in a clinic, hospital, or even in your car. Turnaround time is longer, generally in the 2-3 day range but results can be in as little as 24 hours. When demand is high, results can take a week or longer.

WHO SHOULD GET A RAPID TEST?

Rapid tests are considered most accurate in a patient who is having symptoms of COVID-19. While the rapid test can get you results very quickly, the results may not always be accurate.
