Some pathology providers operating COVID-19 clinics in Queensland need to send the samples they collect to their testing laboratories in another state. This can affect turnaround times for a result, particularly during busy periods.

We suggest you check with your pathology provider about expected wait times.

If you have been tested in a public Queensland Health facility, have not received a call or SMS notification and would like to follow up your negative test result, you can call Pathology Queensland on 1800 472 847.

Wait at least 48 hours after your test was collected. This service is available from Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.30pm. Closed Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.

Hours may be extended during busier periods.
