For inconclusive test results, our ground staff will repeat the ART test for you. If the repeat test is still inconclusive, you may opt for the PCR test which will take 1 – 2 days for report turnaround.

For positive ART results, it is mandatory to perform the PCR test to determine that the person is a confirmed positive case.

You are required to isolate yourself at home until the release of your PCR test result.
