About the test
PCR is the abbreviation for “polymerase chain reaction”. A COVID-19 PCR test checks whether there is genetic material (RNA) from the COVID-19 virus in the nose or pharynx. A swab is taken from the nose and throat with a cotton swab. This is sent to the laboratory where it is examined for the presence of the virus. We provide this test and ensure that the results are available after 24 – 32 hours. You will then receive the result in an English statement by email. A negative result means that you are not a carrier of the COVID-19 virus. A positive test means that you have tested positive for COVID-19. In case of a positive test result, we are obliged to report this to the GGD.
