Once our CLIA-certified laboratory receives your sample, they will have results within 24-48 hours, assuming it passes all quality checks. If there is an issue, they will contact you directly.

A board-certified physician will review and release your results. 

If your results return negative, you will receive an email from GetMyDNA with your results. If your results return positive or invalid/inconclusive you will receive a call from a health care professional with your results.

A PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test check for genetic material (viral RNA) produced by the virus. This determines if an individual is actively infected with COVID-19 and can spread it to others.

A PCR test will confirm whether or not you are currently infected with COVID-19. If your results are positive, it is important to isolate immediately and continue to monitor your symptoms. If your results are negative, it means the virus was not present in the sample you provided.

After receiving your results, you will have an opportunity to speak with a licensed healthcare provider who can answer any questions you may have about your test results and help determine next steps in care.

A PCR test may not detect the virus in early stages of infection. In addition, a PCR test may not detect the virus if there was a problem with your sample, such as when the sample is not collected as directed. There is also the possibility of a false negative (a negative result that is incorrect) if you’ve had recent exposure to the virus along with symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

A PCR test is conducted either by nasal swab or saliva collection. The nasal swab test requires insertion of a swab into your nose and the back of your throat. The saliva test requires providing a sample of your spit into a collection tube.

You do not need to do anything to prepare for the test. You do not need to fast or stop taking any medications before testing. Further instructions will be provided to you at the lab or in your test kit.

Please note: The antibody tests and the molecular tests (together referred to as “tests”) have not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

You should get tested if:

  • You have symptoms of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath)
  • You don’t have symptoms but may have been exposed to COVID-19
  • You don’t have symptoms and haven’t been recently exposed but live or work in a place where people reside, meet, or gather in close proximity (this can include healthcare settings, homeless shelters, assisted living facilities, group homes, prisons, detention centers, schools, and workplaces).
  • Your employer, public health department, contact investigator, or healthcare provider has identified you as someone who should get tested.

If you believe you have symptoms of COVID-19 or that you have been exposed to the virus, you should consult your place of work for specific guidance about whether to stay home or continue working.

Visit the CDC website for more information about testing.

You should not get tested if you:

    • Currently have severe symptoms that limit your daily activities. Seek medical attention right away if this is the case.

    • Tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 3 months. Speak with your healthcare provider prior to getting tested.
