What to expect when being tested for COVID-19

When you arrive at the designated clinic, a security officer will validate your appointment and provide you with a mask that you will be required to wear until you leave. You will then be directed to the appropriate location and informed of the guidelines to follow.

When you are called to be tested, have your medical insurance card in hand. The nurse will ask you about your symptoms and will confirm your identity. Next, the nurse will perform the test by introducing a long-stemmed swab first into your throat, then into your nasal cavity to obtain a sample. It takes approximately 10 seconds to obtain an adequate sample. 

The entire process takes at most ten minutes if there is no waiting. 

You will be given your results within 24 to 72 hours. Negative results are transmitted by text or by phone. Positive result are always transmitted by phone to answer questions, give the guidelines to follow as well as start an investigation.
