COVID-19 Swab Testing FAQ

A respiratory panel includes multiple pathogens on their testing in addition to COVID-19.

COVID-19 infections are frequently accompanied by a second viral infection, and the respiratory panel can tell you which viruses you are carrying.

Pathogens tested include viruses (Flu, RSV, etc) and bacteria (Pseudomonas, Haemophilus, etc). Each lab has a unique panel and cost.

A COVID-19 test only gives you the result for the novel COVID-19 virus.
The COVID-19 sample is taken via nasal or oropharyngeal swab. This means we swab either your nose or your throat, depending on the type of test kit or your preference.
It takes approximately 3-5 days to get results, and this is getting faster over time.
Shipping / Pick-Up takes 24 hours.
In-lab testing requires 48-72 hours.
Processing Results / Fax 24 hours.

The government has said that testing is free. It is free if you get tested through the state department.
I am a small business, and I have to pay my employees. I do not (and cannot) receive money from lab companies to collect samples or send off tests, so I must charge for my staff's time and expertise as well as their risk to the virus.

Please include the color, make, and model of your car.
If we test you in your car, your exposure will be non-existent.
Our staff will be protecting themselves from exposure, which in turns protects you from them.
The outdoor air is great at diluting and carrying away viral particles, so you should not be close enough to anyone in order to be exposed while getting tested.
When they swab you, please do your best to cough or sneeze in the opposite direction of my staff. If you feel it coming on, please turn your head and cough into the crease of your elbow.
Sometimes this can't be controlled, so my staff will be taking precautions to prevent exposure.
