Will this swab test work specifically for coronavirus?

Yes. This test detects the virus that causes the COVID-19 sickness. It is a hard surface test for coronavirus. Please be aware it is not for testing on humans.

Is this test easy to administer by myself?

The test is very easy to administer. If you can operate a Q-Tip swab, you can complete this test. Plus, we provide full written and video instructions to take you through it.

How many rooms will one swab cover?

With one swab you will be able to test up to six surfaces in your home. We recommend starting with high touch areas such as kitchen surfaces and doorknobs.

How fast will I get my results?

The lab strives to get your test results back to you as quickly as possible. However, due to extremely high demand, they may need up to 5-7 days to process your results. Often you will get them back sooner.

What do I do if my home tests positive for coronavirus?

If your home has tested positive for coronavirus, DON’T PANIC! The fact that coronavirus was found in your home doesn’t automatically mean you and your family will become seriously ill. Positive results indicate that at the time testing was conducted, genetic material for coronavirus was present. Here are our recommendations to move forward: Arrange for each member of you family to be tested for COVID-19, if testing is available. Until test results are available, you and all your family members should try to stay inside as much as possible and avoid interaction with others; even if you don’t experience COVID-19 symptoms, you may be contagious to others. Next, you should arrange to give your home a thorough cleaning using CDC-approved products and protocols for mitigating coronavirus. This will involve separate steps for cleaning and disinfecting various surfaces in your home.
