Coronavirus Testing - Puerto Rico

  • Call your doctor if you are symptomatic to discuss whether you should be evaluated in person and considered for testing. If you do not have a primary care doctor, contact an emergency room.
  • If you are seeking medical care, call ahead to the facility and tell them that you may have coronavirus. This will allow the clinic or hospital to prepare before your arrival to protect staff, other patients and visitors.
  • Doctors evaluate if testing should be done based on symptoms and risk and then order testing from the health department.
  • Only people with symptoms are being tested.
  • Samples are sent to the territory's laboratory of public health for analysis and results are generally available between two and six hours after testing begins.
