What to Expect
People to be tested will need to enter into the south side of the building through the sliding glass doors. You will then be greeted at the check in station and will be required to have a scheduled appointment and identification verification. All individuals will be required to wear a mask and/or will be provided a mask.
Upon verification, you will then move to a testing lane. You will be greeted by our team who will perform a nasal swab. The swab will occur for 10 seconds in each nostril.
After completion, our team will run the test on-site.
Results will be sent via a secure message to your email within 2 hours. In certain circumstances, your rapid antigen test may need to be followed with another test (PCR test). You will receive instruction if this is necessary.
