We have expanded COVID-19 viral testing at Ryan Health. It’s a fast and easy way to know whether you have the coronavirus, which can infect those around you.

Ryan Health is utilizing the nasal swab test. The person conducting the test will insert a thin stick with a very soft swab at one end up your nose and twirl it around for a few seconds. The swab on the end of the stick will collect a sample of secretions there for analysis.

Test results may take up to four days. To obtain the results of your COVID-19 test, please check your account on the MyCare Portal. Ryan Health staff will call patients who test positive to schedule a telehealth appointment to assess any symptoms and provide advice and guidance. We will not call patients who test negative.
