“Sentara Healthcare said Thursday test results for the coronavirus could take 10 or more days”

Story at SouthsideDaily.com:

Young said there is a very small percentage of tests being sent to the state lab because the Virginia Department of Health requires patients tested to meet certain criteria, such as travel history and particular symptoms.

People who don’t meet the criteria have to look to private labs for answers which creates a backlog.

Our Volunteers are now required to wear a face mask on every call.

“By comparison, both New York and Washington had tested residents at nearly 10 times the rate as Virginia.”

Article at Pilotonline.com:

With the high demand for testing, there has also been a higher turnaround time for results. Sentara officials said Thursday that results can take 10 days or longer, up from the four- to seven-day estimate the hospital system put out March 16 when it started drive-thru testing.
