Important information

COVID-19 testing does not eliminate the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 or Coronavirus Disease 2019. Further, available testing procedures may produce false negative or false positive results due to a variety of factors. Clients should consider these factors in developing their return to workplace policies and procedures. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented and still-evolving legal landscape for clients. You may need to consider various federal, state, and local laws, regulations, or other mandates when developing your return to worksite plans. Competent legal counsel should be consulted. This is not intended to be a complete description of the terms and conditions of the Return Ready program. Services described would be provided by CVS Pharmacy, Inc. or a subsidiary, including but not limited to MinuteClinic, LLC and its subsidiaries and managed entities. In addition, access to additional health and safety solutions such as contact tracing, symptom checker and thermal scanner may be through third parties. Not all services available in all locations.

Lab samples are sent offsite to independent, third-party labs and results have typically been returned in 2 to 4 days. The increase in COVID-19 cases in certain areas of the country is causing an extremely high demand for tests across the board. This has caused backlogs for our lab partners and currently it may take 6 to 10 days, or more, to receive results.
