What type of test do you provide?

We use PCR tests, which are self-administered anterior nasal/non-invasive swabs under the guidance and supervision of a Registered Nurse.

Are your tests accepted for travel?

IMPORTANT: This is a Broad Institute COVID-19 (RT)-PCR Diagnostic Assay Test which is a CLIA approved lab test. If you are planning to use this test for travel purposes, please check with your destination (state or country) prior to travel to ensure that they will accept this test. Since requirements are changing daily, it is the patient’s responsibility to check on these requirements beforehand.

  • careevolve@lknotification.com

If you have not received your results by email within 48-72 hours of your test…

How do I access my test results?

Click here for step by step instructions on accessing your COVID-19 test results.

I got a positive result, what should I do now?

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status must stay home for 5 days. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house. Please continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. The recommendations often change, verify with CDC website first by clicking Here

Who should quarantine?

If you come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, you should quarantine if you are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccines. This includes people who are not vaccinated. 

For more information visit the CDC’s website below: 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html#quarantine 

 

My family member has received their results but I have not. Why?

Even if you were tested at the same time, most swabs do not stay together during the testing process. Because of this, you may receive your results at different times. Because we strive to contact you as soon as we can, one person may receive their results bright and early while another receives them later in the afternoon. This is nothing to worry about!

My results were negative but I had a close contact. Do I still need to quarantine?

In accordance with CDC Guidelines: 

  

If you had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you are in one of the following groups, you do not need to quarantine. 

  • You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines. 

 

  • You had confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days (meaning you tested positive using a viral test). 

 

  • If you are up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, you should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0). Get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. If you test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms, isolate from other people and follow recommendations in the Isolation section below. If you tested positive for COVID-19 with a viral test within the previous 90 days and subsequently recovered and remain without COVID-19 symptoms, you do not need to quarantine or get tested after close contact. You should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0). If you have COVID-19 symptoms, get tested and isolate from other people and follow recommendations in the Isolation section below.
I tested positive but need a negative test for work/school/travel. When should I retest?

We recommend waiting at least 10 days from your first positive test to go for a retest. Keep in mind, per the CDC, you do not need a negative test to leave quarantine.

I was told that my test was inconclusive. What does this mean?

In the Broad Institute lab, they test 2 strands. A positive test means that both strands are positive, a negative test means that both tests are negative. Inconclusive or invalid means that one strand came back positive and one came back negative. This is neither a positive or negative results and the best thing is to get retested right away. 

I was told my test was invalid. What does this mean?

This specimen failed to produce a valid result after two attempts per the Broad Institute.

Where can I learn more about COVID-19 treatments?

Call your doctor right away to learn about your treatment options if you are positive for COVID-19 or use Massachusetts’ quick and free telehealth service.
