We will bill your insurance for your COVID-19 testing.

Detect active SARS-CoV-2 infection
Who should be tested?
You should be tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, have come into contact with someone who you know is infected by the coronavirus, or meet criteria established by the CDC.
How is the Molecular Test administered?
A sample is taken by a doctor or other healthcare provider from the nose or throat using a swab.
How do I prepare for testing?
You do not need to do anything to prepare for the test. You do not need to fast or stop taking any medications before testing. Further instructions will be provided to you at the lab or in your test kit.
Your safety is our priority and Drive-thru testing has several advantages. Drive-thru testing promotes social distancing, prevents infectious individuals from entering an enclosed building, and offers efficiency and convenience. GoTestMeNow™ currently provides Drive-thru COVID-19 nasal swab active infection testing at our Farmingdale location.
*Nasal swab active infection testing is also available at limited Patient Service Centers. For Drive-thru or Patient Service Center testing, an appointment is necessary.Learn More
Test results will be provided through our secure patient portal.
An independent licensed physician will contact you directly if your results require prompt attention and will help determine next steps in care.
Your samples are tested at Enzo CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified clinical lab to provide accurate, high throughput, and fast test results.
Test results will be provided within within 48 hours through our secure patient portal.
What will my test results tell me?
A molecular test will confirm whether or not you are currently infected with COVID-19. If your results are positive, it is important to isolate immediately and continue to monitor your symptoms. If your results are negative, it means the virus was not present in the sample you provided.
After receiving your results, you will have an opportunity to speak with a licensed healthcare provider who can answer any questions you may have about your test results and help determine next steps in care.
If your test results are abnormal, PWNHealth’s Care Coordination Team may attempt to contact you to notify you of your results and schedule a telehealth consult with a physician or other healthcare provider.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that was first detected in December 2019. COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The virus, which can cause mild to severe respiratory illness, was first identified in Wuhan, China, and has now spread globally, including in the United States. Those who have this disease may or may not experience symptoms, which range from mild to severe. COVID-19 spreads easily from person-to-person, even when an infected person is not showing symptoms. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, droplets containing the virus go into the air. These droplets can be inhaled or land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, exposing them to the virus.
People may also be exposed to COVID-19 by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth after touching a surface with the virus on it. Although this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, researchers are still learning more about COVID-19.

Social Distancing, Isolation and quarantine are ways to limit your interaction with others to prevent the spread of disease.
Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. It includes:
Self-quarantine is separating individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but haven’t been tested. They are separated for a brief period of time (14 days after possible exposure) to see if they develop symptoms.
Self-isolation is separating individuals with COVID-19 from people who are not sick. Individuals are separated for a period of time until they are no longer infectious.
If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, it is very important to stay home and limit your interaction with others in your household and in public.
