At Great Lakes Labs, we knew testing for COVID-19 was important from the beginning. That is why our President and CEO, Michelle Volk, invested in a state-of-the-art machine that can determine if someone has an infection. The best part – the results are fast. In just 24-36 business hours you can be notified with results.

Why is testing important? There is a myriad of reasons to be tested. Perhaps you’ve been around someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, but you aren’t showing symptoms. Our tests provide results even if no symptoms are present. This information can help you determine your next steps to keep others around you safe and healthy.

Another reason is to rule out COVID-19 from other illnesses that mirror its symptoms. Even certain allergy symptoms can be confused for the Coronavirus. Maybe you are going to visit your grandma or a friend who is fighting cancer. The test results are a tool to help our community make safe choices.
