How long does it take to get covid 19 test results back?

I want to make sure I have a front row seat when Pence's test comes back. I'm not sure it will be positive , but I can hope.

1. Why do you think the results would be announced?

12. They might announce the results, but no one would believe the announcement.

That's what happens when your boss is a pathological liar.

2. We're currently running at about a three-day turnaround.

Just got the results of my second test (ordered after our maintenance man died of COVID-19) - Negative.

We're probably going to have a memorial lunch in his honor next week. We're still shocked and heartbroken.

4. They are using the ones that provides results

almost immediately. From what I heard on tv yesterday they have a 20% false negative problem.

6. There is a 15-minute test, which apparently is what the WH is using, but

questions have been raised about the test's accuracy - they might be returning 15% false negatives.

9. They have had time to issue the all clear.

Hopefully there is a group scrambling furiously trying to figure out how to spin it.

10. My daughter had the "painful" one.....

WAY up the nose........
She works in a hospital (Occupational Therapist) and awoke with a sore throat - the admin. insisted on a test (she wanted one anyhow!).
They told her 1 to 3 days.
Called back the next day - NEGATIVE!

(yeah, VERY relieved!)
