Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions we usually get about our Coronavirus Test (COVID-19). If you would like yours answered, please contact us.
If you receive a positive result you should remain in self-isolation, and inform your healthcare provider of your result. You should follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
The length of time between a person becoming infected with the type of coronavirus that causes COVID-19 disease and developing symptoms can vary. Symptoms usually develop between 2-14 days after being exposed to the virus, with the average length of time being about 5 days.
You can find information about COVID-19 on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website. This website provides information about how to protect yourself and others from the coronavirus, and what to do if you become unwell.
For everyone’s safety LetsGetChecked uses a sample transport media which inactivates the virus (meaning it is no longer infectious), but preserves it for analysis. This means that the virus is deactivated or killed in the transport tube and so will protect anyone should it spill or get opened before arriving in the lab.
Following the release of your results, an official lab report will become available on your patient dashboard within your LetsGetChecked account.
This report will contain the details of the test performed, including:
- Infectious disease tested
- Testing date
- Results Summary
- Test provider
These include reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) or transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) tests, gold-standard diagnostic tests for COVID-19.
These tests work by amplifying the amount of genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 virus so that it can be detected and analysed by our team of clinical scientists within our ISO 15189 accredited lab.
Activating the test connects you to the unique alphanumeric barcode within your LetsGetChecked test kit. The laboratory cannot process your sample if the test kit is not activated and linked to you.
LetsGetChecked has a team of physicians who will review your order and results. Our nursing team is on standby throughout the testing process and, if you test positive, you will receive a call to discuss your results and treatment options.
Keeping your data secure is important to us. All data is completely anonymized to ensure that your privacy is maintained throughout the process. We will not share your information with any third party.
All samples are disposed of following analysis.
Your samples are processed in the same labs used by primary care providers, hospitals and government schemes.
LetsGetChecked laboratories are CLIA approved and CAP-accredited, which are the highest levels of accreditation.
Sample collection kits are manufactured within our ISO 13485 accredited facility, the highest level of accreditation for medical devices.
