How does the testing work?

To test whether or not you have COVID-19, a sample will be taken by swabbing deep inside the nose, which can be uncomfortable, some may even find the process painful. The sample will be placed in a sterile container and sent to an offsite lab for testing.

While waiting on results, patients will be advised to go home, self-isolate, monitor their symptoms, and seek medical care if symptoms worsen.

You will be able to view test results on your St. Claire HealthCare MyHealth patient portal as soon as they are available. You will also receive a courtesy call with your results. The turnaround time for test results is dependent on the testing volume at St. Claire HealthCare and across the state.
