Why is a nasal swab used on me?
A nasal swab is the most accurate diagnostic tool to detect active COVID-19 infection. Such a test will give you (and our providers) the confidence for the next steps in your care.
How is the test processed?
The collected sample is sent to a lab where we perform a reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction on it (RT-PCR). This test can detect the virus up to 2 days before patients become symptomatic.
How is the swab test done?
How long until I get the swab results?
What do the swab results mean?
A positive result means you have an active COVID-19 infection. Your text/email will provide more information and your telemedicine consultation will provide you a space where you can ask your provider any questions.
What happens after swab testing?
You will receive an email or text with your result. We will schedule a telemedicine consult with you. Our doctors will provide COVID-19 counseling, discuss your results, and advise you on next steps. Please practice health safety precautions in the meantime to keep you, your family, and our community safe.
Who are the people I will be speaking to through the virtual device?
