We remain open for business during regular hours to provide testing orders and assist our clients with any questions or concerns.

For additional information on how to protect yourself from COVID-19, see the CDC website.
Your Safety and Well-being at the Patient Service Centers for Labcorp & Quest Diagnostics (our reference laboratories)
Neither Labcorp nor Quest Diagnostics patient service centers are collecting specimen for swab testing to determine current COVID-19 infections. Specimens for this type of testing can only be collected at approved medical facilities and cannot be done at patient service centers (where you would go to execute a medical order from Request A Test).
- PSC personnel are not handling or processing any samples for patients testing for active COVID-19 infections.
- People who believe they may have been exposed to Coronavirus are specifically asked not to come to a patient service center where they risk infecting other people. Remain at home and contact your doctor or local health department for further guidance.
Both labs have implemented a number of procedures to help protect the health and safety of both clients and staff:
- Lab personnel are wearing masks and additional protective clothing
- Disinfecting surfaces and washing hands with greater frequency
- Visitors to patient service centers are required to wear masks
- Providing additional training to employees in the necessary safety measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus
- The first business hour of each day is reserved to serve people over the age of 60 and with serious underlying conditions
Once you have checked in a PSC, you may wait in your car or other nearby location rather than in the lobby if you prefer. If you schedule an appointment and provide a cell phone number, you will be able to check-in from your mobile device and will receive a text when the lab attendant is ready to see you.
At some Quest locations, personnel may be checking temperatures using a no-contact forehead temperature reader. If your temperature is outside of the acceptable range, you may be denied service.
As this situation evolves, Request A Test will continue to update our site and notify clients of any relevant new information. Please contact us at 1-888-732-2348 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
