Speedy Sticks is a concierge medical services company, not a laboratory. While we can estimate when you may receive your results, turnaround times ultimately come down to the lab processing your results. You may also use the laboratory’s secure portal to view the status of your test results. If you do not have text messaging capabilities, the laboratory may contact you via email. Please be sure to check your spam and junk folders of your email to ensure that you do not miss any emails from any of the laboratories we work with.

COVID-19 PCR Nasal Swab

If you suspect that you presently have the virus, your doctor will likely recommend that you get the COVID-19 PCR Nasal Swab. This test will tell you whether or not you have an active COVID-19 infection.

Turnaround Time: Results are usually ready within 3 to 5 days.

Expedited COVID-19 PCR Nasal Swab

Like the COVID-19 PCR Nasal Swab, this test will reveal whether or not you have an active COVID-19 infection. The difference is that you will get your results sooner.

Turnaround Time: Results are usually ready within 2 to 3 days.

Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test

Known for its unmatched efficiency, the Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test can determine if you have the virus within 15 minutes. The test is administered via nasal swab.

Turnaround Time: Results are yielded in under 15 minutes.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

The COVID-19 Antibody Test can determine if you carry the antibodies associated with COVID-19. If the test comes back positive, that means that you were at some point infected, even if you are not currently ill. The COVID-19 Antibody Test requires a blood test rather than a nasal swab

Turnaround Time: Results are usually ready within 2 to 3 days.
