Collection Times

COVID-19 test kits will be collected Monday-Friday at 3:00 pm from the drop off bins. Samples submitted after that time will be collected on the following collection day.

Details & Restrictions

Due to a change in the lab process and location, test results will now take an additional 24 hours to come back, so please expect up to a two-day turnaround time to receive your results. Samples should not be submitted between Friday 3:00 pm and Sunday 3:00 pm, as they will become expired and rejected by the lab.
