CompuNet said it’s seen an increase in demand for direct access to COVID tests. They said Direct access allows for a patient to purchase a lab test, without a doctor’s note, and access their results online.

According to a press release by Premier Health, COVID-19 PCR testing is considered standard for accuracy and is recommended for individuals who have COVID symptoms or believe they have been exposed. The release also stated the PCR testing is greatly recommended for those who need travel documentation and that results are typically available within the 72-hour required travel window.

Officials with Premier Health said the COVID-19 Antigen testing is recommended for an individual who is about five days from displaying COVID-19 symptoms and that test provides rapid results in a couple of hours.
