|Return of Results||Positive test results are delivered immediately by telephone call (we MUST have a reliable way to reach you)
Negative results are returned as soon as possible but can be delayed given the need to prioritize positive results return. Thank you for your patience in receiving your negative results. On registration, please indicate when asked if we can leave a negative result on your voicemail or email it to you; this will expedite results return and eliminate the back-and-forth in trying to connect by phone if you do not answer. To inquire about your results if you have not heard back in 4-5 days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
