COVID-19 is a disease caused by a specific strain of coronavirus known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This virus was identified in late 2019.
SARS-CoV-2 spreads from person to person through droplets expelled in the air after someone with the infection coughs, sneezes, or talks. When exposed to the virus, most people exhibit symptoms within 14 days.
Because COVID-19 is a new disease, doctors and researchers are still learning about the virus, the disease, and its symptoms.
You may benefit from lab tests for COVID-19 if you’re experiencing symptoms of the disease. Common symptoms include:
You may also benefit from the lab test if you were in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
GatherWell offers individual drive-up testing by appointment. They also offer a mobile lab test service, which offers on-site bulk testing for groups and events.
