For those 13 years and older, expect the site to have a self-administered nasal swab test. This allows you to swab your own nose on site while in your vehicle. Once that's done, you'll drop the sealed sample into a container on your way out of the drive-thru site.

How old do I have to be to take the test?

You must be at least 3 years old to take the test.

How will I know when my test result is available?

Test results are available by calling (866) MYQUEST (1-866-697-8378), but keep in mind that wait times can take days. Test results are also available through the Quest online portal or app.
