Frequently Asked Questions
When should I get tested?
- First Determine your exposure risk:
- High risk: within 6 feet, without a mask, and longer than 15 minutes of exposure
- Low risk: same general area (more than 6 feet,) with mask, less than 15 minutes of exposure
- If high risk then we recommend to isolate, and to be tested 3 days after the initial interaction, with or without symptoms. If test is negative, then retest on day 6.
- If low risk then we recommend to isolate and be tested at least 3 days after exposure.
- If symptoms develop at any time, it is recommended to be tested a second time. Center for Disease Control (CDC)
When can I return to work with exposure?
- Low risk exposure without symptoms: test on day 3 and with negative test, you may return back to work immediately.
- High Risk exposure without symptoms: test on day 3 and day 6. If both negative, then return to work with mask and continue 6 foot distance.
- If any symptoms develop, home and isolate immediately, retest on day 6.
When can I return to work a with positive test?
- If you have no symptoms isolate and stay home for at least 10 days.

Why are you not conducting the Antibody test?
- The CDC does not currently recommend using antibody test as the sole basis for diagnosis of acute infection.
- Antibody tests are not authorized by FDA for such diagnostic purposes.
- Antibodies most commonly become detectable 1-3 weeks after symptom onset, at which time evidence suggests that infectiousness likely is greatly decreased and that some degree of immunity from future infection has developed.
- Any positive antibody results should be confirmed with a second independent test. For more information on COVID-19 testing click here.
