COVID Molecular Test
The test is looking for the presence (positive result) or absence (negative result) of the virus SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) which causes the disease “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19)*.
*Veritas is performing this test using reagent kit which is approved under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) the FDA created specifically for COVID testing. Like other currently available tests, this test has not been FDA cleared or approved, and has been authorized only for the detection of antibodies (specifically, IgG) in response to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum and/or plasma. This test is only authorized for the duration of the EUA.
Specimen type: Nasal swab
Result: Within 48 hours from receipt in the lab.
Telemedicine Ordering & Support
Your COVID test will include a physician ordering and support service without additional charges, provided by our telemedicine partner.
A physician licensed in your state will determine if a test is right for you and if so approve it.
If your test result returns as positive, a physician will schedule a telemedicine consultation to help you determine next steps. Once individual ordering is available.

Because We Are All in This Together #COVID19
Since the early days of the pandemic, we have joined key COVID initiatives to lead and address the need for high quality testing.
We are a part of the COVID standards group operated by Stanford University. We are also collaborating with colleagues at Harvard Medical School to massively scale COVID-19 molecular testing using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).
Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with our progress in community scale COVID testing.
There are several good resources to obtain more information on COVID-19, including preventive steps to reduce exposure to yourself and others as well as what to do if you are sick or experiencing certain symptoms.
