Frequently Asked Questions 

This COVID-19 testing opportunity is being provided by Lower Lights Christian Health Center.   Lower Lights Christian Health Center is Union County’s community health center. The following answers to frequently asked questions are provided by our partners as Lower Lights as of July 31. For the most current FAQs, please visit Lower Lights Christian Health Center.

How will I receive my results? – Results are NOT available on site. Results typically return in 2-4 days. Results can be accessed through the private lab’s online patient portal. You will need to create an account on the lab’s patient portal in order to be notified when your results are ready. Go to http://patient.labcorp.com to create your account. Additionally, Lower Lights will call patients who have a POSITIVE test result.  It is important that you answer your phone.  For questions about results, please email covid.testing@llchc.org.

How is the test performed? — You will remain in your car.  A nurse wearing personal protective equipment will use a short nasal swab to collect a sample from within your nostril. The swab is NOT painful and takes about 10-20 seconds to collect.  The sample will be sent to a private lab for testing.

What is the cost? – If you have insurance, your insurance will cover the cost of the test with no copay.  There is no cost for testing if you do not have insurance.

Do I need a doctor’s referral to be tested? You do not need a referral to be tested.  

What do I need to bring with me in order to have a test performed?  Please bring your insurance card (if you have insurance) and a photo id.

Why is testing important? — As we seek to follow guidance from the Center for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health, and our local health departments, we have been eager to help expand testing options for our patients and our community. There is an increased focus on wider testing to more broadly identify local disease burden and limit community spread.

Who should be tested? –  Although a doctor’s order is not required for testing at this location, we encourage anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 to consider first talking to your doctor to determine if testing is right for you. Testing is recommended for those who are symptomatic, or who believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or those who live in congregate housing (such as a shelter). Anyone may come for testing regardless of symptoms, insurance status or county of residence.
