When can I expect the results of my COVID-19 test?

When is the ideal time to test for Covid-19?

The ideal time to get tested for Covid-19 is 3-5 days after suspected exposure or symptom onset.

What does a positive test result mean?

A positive test result means that you have been infected with the COVID-19 virus. Based on available data, persons infected with the virus are typically contagious for 10 days after onset of symptoms. For this reason, the CDC recommends that you quarantine for a minimum of 10 days from the time your symptoms started. You may return to work or resume social contacts after 10 days if your symptoms are improving, and you have not had a fever for 24 hours (not using fever reducing medications). If you continue to have a fever or persistent symptoms after 10 days, you need to continue to quarantine at home as you may still be contagious. While under quarantine, DO NOT GO OUT OF YOUR HOME UNLESS YOUR CONDITION IS WORSENING. YOU SHOULD THEN CALL THE ER TO NOTIFY THEM THAT YOU WILL BE COMING TO THE ER OR CALL 911. Wear a mask. Your local Health Department will likely contact you. Their instructions on quarantine supersedes these instructions.

What does a negative test result mean?

A negative test result does NOT necessarily rule out infection with COVID-19. Based on available data, it can take 2–14 days from the time of exposure to COVID-19 to develop symptoms or become an infected asymptomatic carrier. This means that depending on when you are tested compared to when you were exposed, you could have a negative test result and still be infected with COVID-19.
