As a reminder, the Lab PCR tests have a 1 to 3 day turnaround time for results. Due to the high demand, they are running on the longer side of that time estimate. Please be patient and check your PMG account in the status section for any results. They will post them there once ready and will also text or email you. We appreciate your patience. Also, if the status section does not show a test, it does not mean they lost your sample, it simply means the results are not yet ready.
