Delivery of results
The results of the RT-PCR test will be sent to the e-mail address you provided or to your telephone as a text message within 48 hours at the latest. Usually, laboratories inform patients about the results of the test within 24 hours.
The method of delivery of results differs in the case of antigen tests.
If you need confirmation of a negative result on COVID-19, for example for employers or when traveling abroad, the document must include:
- your name and surname
- place of birth
- the disease you have been tested for: Covid-19
- test method: RT-PCR test result: negative
- test date
- stamp and signature of the doctor or test centre
You can then print out such a report. If you only received an SMS, you can download the form.
I have a negative result. Am I 100% "clean" then?
A negative result cannot serve, for example, as a confirmation of infectivity, because it is not one. It only indicates the current absence of an RNA virus in the test sample. The tested patient can still be infected, only not enough time has passed since the infection, etc.
