2-Step Coronavirus(COVID-19) Test

First of all, a Video Visit (telemedicine) with our doctor is required to find out whether the patient needs to be tested for COVID-19 and/or other tests, or not. In case of confirmation of any COVID-19 related signs, symptoms, or other decisions by the doctor, the patient gets the drive-thru test in special testing locations (see below). Due to drive-thru testing, patients do not have to leave their vehicles while being tested for COVID-19. Please, take into consideration, that only 1 drive-by time-window is available for each testing location per day. Please, find the schedules for each testing location below.

COVID-19 TEST PROCEDURE

The drive-thru test is a quick and safe procedure, the purpose of which is the detection of any evidence of COVID-19 virus in the patient’s organism. The procedure of the antibody test includes swabbing from the patient’s nose carried out by our doctor. The sample collection for the SARS-COV-2 PCR test suggests the nasopharyngeal sampling method, which later is being interpreted for conclusions. During the whole procedure of sampling, the patient does not leave his/her vehicle. 

WHEN TO EXPECT COVID-19 RESULTS

Within 1-3 business days, the results are ready, which means that the interpretation of the test outcomes will be sent to the patient via email.
