A Delay Receiving Covid Test Results

Notification from Premier Medical Laboratory Services

We are in the midst of unprecedented times in the lab industry with an increased demand for Covid-19 variant surveillance and a surge in lab testing. As a result of this testing surge, we are experiencing 48 – 72-hour turnaround times for COVID test results. Our goal is to improve turnaround times by getting you results within 24 – 48 hours over the next week or two as we add staff and new equipment for processing.


The KCHC staff appreciate your understanding and patience with us as we navigate the high volume of samples entering our lab daily over this past holiday season.
