  • Testing Definitions 

    What is a PCR test?

    A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is performed to detect genetic material from a specific organism, such as a virus. The test detects the presence of a virus if you are infected at the time of the test. The test could also detect fragments of virus even after you are no longer infected.

    What is a COVID-19 PCR test?

    A PCR test for COVID-19 is a test used to diagnosis people who are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, which is the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The PCR test is the “gold standard” test for diagnosing COVID-19 because it’s the most accurate and reliable test.

    What do COVID-19 PCR test results mean?

    positive test result means that it is very likely that you have COVID-19. Most people have mild illness and can recover safely at home without medical care. If any student or employee tests positive for COVID-19 please contact their school (Student) or your supervisor (Employee). Contact your healthcare provider if your symptoms get worse or if you have questions or concerns. 

    negative test result means you probably didn't have COVID-19 at the time you took your test. However, it is possible to be infected with SARS-CoV-2 but not have enough virus in your body to be detected by the test. For example, this may happen if you recently became infected but you don’t have symptoms, yet; or it could happen if you've had COVID-19 for more than a week before being tested. Keep in mind that a negative test doesn’t mean you are safe for any length of time. You can be exposed to COVID-19 after your test, get infected and spread the SARS-Cov-2 virus to others.

No-Cost COVID-19 PCR Testing (LCS Employees and Students ONLY). Please note: if you don't receive results via email, please call Compass Health at (786) 221-1734.
