Media Statement: Result Timeframes

LabCorp has performed over 10 million molecular tests since first making our COVID-19 test available in March, and we are able to process 180,000 tests per day with plans to increase capacity further.

Our average time to deliver results is 1-3 days from specimen pickup. At this time, based on Department of Health and Human Services guidance, we are prioritizing testing for residents and staff from nursing homes in “hot spot” states in addition to hospitalized patients. All other testing for patients is performed in the order in which it is received.
