Call your healthcare professional if you feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with an ongoing spread of COVID-19. You may need to be tested for COVID-19, which is imperative in aiding healthcare professionals and public health authorities to identify infected patients more quickly. BioReference is pleased to offer a high-quality assay to ensure patients and their healthcare providers have greater access to testing to promote earlier diagnosis and help limit the spread of infection.
Please note: A patient cannot order their own tests, and a doctor’s requisition or lab script is required for all testing. Patients under
investigation of COVID-19 and seeking an evaluation of the disease will not be collected at BioReference Patient Service Centers, and
the specimen should be collected at physician offices, hospitals or other clinic settings.
