How to Get My COVID-19 Test Result

The COVID-19 test result is available through a LabCorp Patient™ account or from your healthcare provider.

If your healthcare provider or a telemedicine program ordered a COVID-19 test from LabCorp, your result will be delivered directly to a LabCorp Patient™ account as soon as it is available.* You can create an account anytime.

How long does it take to get a result?

What if I don’t see my result?

Can I also get my result from my doctor?

Yes. If your doctor or other healthcare provider ordered the test you can also get your result from them. You should contact your healthcare provider directly if you have questions about your test result. COVID-19 test results are reported to public health authorities as required.
