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 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.

Can I have a copy of my COVID-19 test lab report sent to my employer?

With your authorization, St. Claire HealthCare can fax your lab report to your employer. Simply complete a Release of Information form with your employer's name address, and fax number. Then return the form to St. Claire's Health Information Office. Your form can be submitted in person, by fax (606.783.6518), or mail to:
