Talking Testing – How Deep Do They Need To Go? How Long Do Results Take?

Photo by Vera Marie

“Dear PoPville,

I got a Covid test yesterday at Fire Station 24 on. Georgia Ave in Petworth. They did not do the deep-into-the-brain test. Rather, the techs swabbed just barely inside my nostrils. My understanding is that even with the tests that don’t require the long swab/deep test, the swabs must still go fairly far into the nostril. Has anyone else seen this with testing? Are these tests reliable?”

Others who have written in are curious to know how many days it took for you to receive your results?
