COVID 19 SALIVA PCR TEST
WHY SHOULD I GET TESTED?
A diagnostic test can show if you have an active coronavirus infection and should take steps to quarantine or isolate yourself from others. Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests which detect the virus – molecular tests (RT-PCR tests) that detect the virus’s genetic material, and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus.
A positive test result for COVID-19 indicates that RNA from SARS-CoV-2 was detected, and the patient is infected with the virus and presumed to be contagious.

- When should I get tested?
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19

- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- What is being tested?
The saliva test, like the nasopharyngeal swab, work by detecting genetic material from the coronavirus. Both tests are very specific, meaning that a positive test almost always means that the person is infected with the virus. However, both tests can be negative, even if a person is proven later to be infected (known as a false negative). This is especially true for people who carry the virus but have no symptoms.
Saliva tests allow a patient to spit into a tube rather than have their nose or throat swabbed. Saliva tests may be more comfortable for some people and may be safer for health care workers who can be farther away during the sample collection.
