COVID-19 RT-PCR Testing Canton
COVID-19 RT-PCR Testing Canton:
In Canton, MA, our RT-PCR COVID-19, DNA test/screening determines if the individual is infected with SARS-CoV-2 and considered to be able to transmit the disease (a positive test) or is negative for the virus. This test cannot tell whether a person is immune from past infection or has yet to be exposed and is still in danger. This test is required to travel into certain states in New England, such as Maine or New Hampshire. See state guidelines for up to date information.
OccuMed of New England is currently offering asymptomatic individuals COVID testing at our Canton, MA location.

An inconclusive test result occurs when either (a) one of the two viral probes (either N1 or N2) being positive while the other is not detected after two attempts on the specimen or (b) results are discordant after two attempts on this specimen. It is recommended that the patient should consider obtaining a new test, but the patient will absorb the cost.
