Please see our FAQ’s for more information.
Please determine when you need your test done. Work out the time as the test centre will issue
the test result time based on when you did the test.
Please make sure you don’t eat, drink, chew gum, smoke or brush your teeth at least 20 minutes
before you take the mouth and nasal swab test. Doing this can contaminate your sample, which
may result in it needing a retest and therefore, delaying your result.
