If it is clinically indicated that I need to be tested for COVID-19, which type of test will Hamilton Health Box be providing to the Pitzer community?

Hamilton Health Box will be providing diagnostic testing for the Pitzer community through the means of a Molecular PCR Test. This test will be collected using the naso-phyrengeal swab method. A molecular test using a deep nasal swab is usually the best option, because it will have fewer false negative results than other diagnostic tests or samples from throat swabs or saliva.
