COVID-19 testing through LabCorp
March 12, 2020
To facilitate greater access to testing for the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, NC DHHS encourages providers to submit specimens to LabCorp when the following conditions are met:
➢ Fever AND signs/symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) AND negative influenza test (rapid or PCR).
Guidance for testing at LabCorp is available at https://www.labcorp.com/tests/139900/2019novel-coronavirus-covid-19-naa. Clinicians should use their judgment to determine which patients are most in need of testing. NC DHHS does not recommend testing of asymptomatic patients for COVID-19.
