Coronavirus: What you need to KNOW


Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an illness caused by a virus that is transmitted from person to person. Symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness. One can be infected from respiratory droplets when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Other ways that one can be infected is by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.

The saliva PCR test provides a qualitative result which detects the live active virus for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This test helps identify if you have been exposed to the virus. The COVID-19 PCR test is a molecular test that detects the virus’s genetic material.
