Expect major delays in the results turnaround time due to unprecedented demand nationwide.
Labs are required now to put all positive results to the front of the line and therefore unable to post results if you test negative for the virus in a timely manner. This means that though the lab may run your test within 24-48 hours the results will not be posted and available to you for days. Positive results are posted first so if your test does produce a positive indication of active infection your results will post first.
This is a national issue with all labs being entirely overwhelmed because the volume of testing being done is many times more than ever before. Results with the four labs we use are currently averaging from 4-5 days, sometimes more, though if you test positive you will be notified of your results much sooner and likely within 48 hours.
We expect this to change within two to three weeks as demand tapers and more resources are put to work.
