COVID-19 Test Results Status

VNA currently anticipates receiving your PCR test results from the lab within an average of 2-4 days of your test. Receipt of test results is dependent on lab processing time which may be longer than usual due to the current surge in demand for COVID-19 testing,

For Rapid testing (VNA Patients Prioritized), receive your results within one hour. See the locations below.

For SHIELD Testing, receive your results in 24-48 hours.

Would you like to receive your COVID-19 test results by text?  If so, simply answer YES to receiving text messages when you complete your consent.

You can receive COVID-19 test results in 4 ways:

  1. Consent to sign up for text notifications from VNA at the time of testing. You will then receive a notification to let you know your results.
  2. If you have previously signed up for the VNA patient portal, your test results will be available on the portal. If you need a letter for your employer or school, you can request one through the patient portal. The letter can then be printed out through the portal. If you do not have a printer, you can request that VNA print the letter for you and arrange to pick it up from your local VNA Health Center.
  3. If you choose not to sign up for text notifications and do not have a login to the VNA Patient Portal, then you will receive a phone call notifying you of your results. At that time, you may request a hard copy letter of your results.
  4. If you choose SHIELD saliva testing at the Aurora – Highland Avenue location you will receive results electronically from SHIELD
