Note: If you do not already have an MUSC Health MyChart account, you will receive an email with activation information after you make your appointment. A MyChart account is essential, as you will use it to check in for your screening and it is how you will get your results.

After your screening, you will receive an email when your test results are available in MyChart. The results typically take from 1 to 3 days.

What to do after your test

  • If you suspect you have the coronavirus, you should quarantine while waiting for the results of your test. 
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, know what protective steps to take if you are sick.
    • Most people have mild COVID-19 illness and can recover at home without medical care. Contact your health care provider if your symptoms are getting worse or if you have questions about your health.
  • If you test negative for COVID-19, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. This does not mean you will not get sick:
    • A negative test result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing or that your sample was collected too early in your infection.
    • You could also be exposed to COVID-19 after the test and then get infected and spread the virus to others.
    • If you have symptoms later, you may need another test to determine if you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
