      How soon after suspected exposure to COVID-19 should a person be tested?

      Always start by consulting your physician. There is growing evidence and agreement in the medical community that testing for COVID-19 at Day 3 and Day 10 is prudent. It is recommended that a person isolate themselves for 14 days after exposure to the virus.

      No, but we encourage patients to reach out to their providers to see if the cost of their test is covered. COVID Clinic will provide necessary materials/receipts requested for reimbursement by the insurance provider.

      I have a pre-registration number; is that all I need?

      No, you will need to complete all patients forms and appointment registration online www.wearelifelinehealth.com

      I made my appointment but wasn’t able to get tested. Will I get a refund?
