Next Steps After Testing
When will I receive my test results?
Your test results should be available in seven (7) days. Please contact your primary care doctor to receive your results. If you do not have a doctor, view this list of doctors who are accepting new patients in Detroit.
If you do not have a healthcare provider or your provider does not have your test results, please contact the Detroit Health Department COVID-19 hotline at 313-876-4000.
You can also view your lab results through the BioReference Laboratories patient portal. Visit www.bioreference.com/patient-portal to create your patient account.
What should I do while I am waiting for my results?
Most patients with COVID-19 have mild symptoms and recover on their own. Resting, staying hydrated, and sleeping are typically helpful. Treat your symptoms with oral fluids, medicines for fevers, cough, pain, etc.
- Stay home and home-isolate, except to get medical care. Do not have visitors over.
- Limit going outside your home, except for getting medical care. Only get medical care if it is absolutely necessary.
- Wear a facemask around other people and continue social distancing.
- Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day, such as door knobs, phones, toilets with household cleaning sprays. Don’t share household items, such as glasses, towels or bedding.
- Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes and immediately wash your hands and throw away used tissues in a lined trash can.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water is preferred if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Monitor your symptoms. Seek prompt medical attention if your illness is worsening (e.g., difficulty breathing, high fever). Before seeking care, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have, or are being evaluated for, COVID-19. Put on a facemask before you enter the facility. These steps will help the healthcare provider’s office to keep other people in the office or waiting room from getting infected or exposed.
When can I stop home isolation?
Patients with confirmed COVID-19 should follow guidance from their healthcare provider about when they can stop home isolation.
What should others at your home do while you wait for your results?
- Help you follow the doctor’s instructions.
- Help you monitor your symptoms and if worsening symptoms call 911.
- Stay in another room. Household members should stay in another room or be separated from you as much as possible. Household members should use a separate bedroom and bathroom, if available.
- Ensure good air flow is occuring in your home, such as by an air conditioner or an opened window, weather permitting.
- Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face.
- Wear a facemask when you are in the same room and gloves when you come in contact with bodily fluids.
- Wash laundry thoroughly.
- Avoid sharing personal household items with the patient. You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, bedding, or other items.
What if my test results are positive?
- Continue to stay at home until your symptoms improve. If your symptoms get significantly worse, seek immediate medical attention.
- While at home, avoid contact with others. Any individuals you have been in contact with since you felt ill should also avoid leaving their home for two weeks. If any of your family members are showing symptoms, they should also stay isolated until their symptoms improve.
- Continue to wash your hands regularly and keep at least 6 feet from others.
- If you must go out, wear a facemask or other cloth covering. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
