Lab: For COVID-19 testing, contact your doctor

From Quest Diagnostics:

At Quest Diagnostics, we place our patients’ health and safety above all else. During this coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency, we’re doing everything we can to serve our communities while also protecting our patients and answering your questions.

It is important to reach out to your doctor immediately if you have a reason to suspect COVID-19.

As symptoms of COVID-19 mimic the flu, your doctor will determine if you need COVID-19 or flu testing.

Please do not go to a Quest patient service center. Quest does not collect COVID-19 specimens – only your doctor can do this. Contact your doctor for COVID-19 testing.
