I haven’t gotten my test results yet. When will I get them?

Last updated 7/14/2020

Because of the increase in cases throughout much of the country, many labs are experiencing a surge in samples to test. This is causing a delay in people getting their results, even here in Maryland and Frederick County. It could take 7-10 days to get results, and we are hearing of some taking longer than that. It’s very important for people to self-quarantine and stay away from others while waiting for test results so that people aren’t spreading the virus before they find out that they have COVID-19.
