I was tested for coronavirus (COVID-19). How long until my test results will be available?

FAQ Answer

Contact your health care provider for your test results. Results will usually be available in 24-48 hours, but may vary depending on a variety of factors (e.g., the time required to get the specimen to the lab, number of specimens that need to be tested, lab being used to do the testing). The North Dakota Department of Health is unable to release results to patients.

The North Dakota Department of Health has developed a fact sheet for people who have been tested for COVID-19 and are waiting for results. The fact sheet can be found at:  https://www.health.nd.gov/sites/www/files/documents/Files/MSS/coronavirus/Fact_Sheet_for_People_Being_Tested.pdf
