What to expect when arriving at the mobile testing site:

  • The sample is collected via a nasal swab and the process typically takes less than 30 seconds, not including any wait times.
  • Testing results for the coronavirus typically take 5-7days, depending on regional test volume. Individuals will be contacted directly with their results. As volumes increase, wait times for results may be longer.
