If you test positive on a home antigen test, you are considered COVID-19 positive. You do not need to schedule a PCR test unless required by your employer, school, etc.
Testing at Reliant is by appointment and is only available for Reliant patients.
|Reliant patients can schedule a COVID-19 PCR test by calling your PCP’s office. Self-scheduling is no longer an option. Testing will be scheduled at one of our primary care offices, generally on the same day or next day. We do not offer “walk-in” testing.|
|Some offices test car-side while others test inside the office. Patients will receive instructions when making an appointment.|
|A clinician will collect a sample from your nose to test for COVID-19. Your test will be sent to Quest Diagnostics. If your provider also ordered a flu test, a sample may also be taken to test for the flu virus.|
|Your test results will come back to the Reliant provider who ordered your test. We expect that you will be notified of your test results within 2 days, but the exact timeframe will depend on the lab’s volume (Quest Diagnostics). You will receive an automated call from Reliant with your test result. If your result is positive, you may also be contacted by your primary care provider’s office within one business day. All results will also be available in MyChart. Please know that if you have not heard from us, your results are not available yet. We will communicate with you promptly when we receive your results from the lab.|
Reliant will test asymptomatic patients (those not showing symptoms of COVID-19) who express a “requirement” reason (including but not limited to requirements by employers, vacation rentals, camps, schools, travel requirements, etc.). Patients should contact their primary care provider’s office to request a test appointment.
