Ethos Laboratories has partnered with local organizations to offer multiple locations for collection of your sample for COVID-19 testing.
Our COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 Viral PCR Test will determine whether you are Positive or Negative by detecting 5 gene targets of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. With a simple nasal swab that is minimally invasive, we can provide results to you within 48 hours.
We also offer Tru-Immune and Rapid Antibody testing at our Newport, KY location.
This testing is available with no out-of-pocket cost to patients. Click the link on this page to schedule your appointment.
