What do I need to bring?
You will need your insurance card, photo ID, and your smartphone with the Kyla app on it.
Where is the test site located?
Test sites are typically located in a protected part of the parking lot. Look for a white van with the Kyla logo.
How do you test for COVID19?
We conduct Antigen testing for COVID19, which tests for active infections. This is primarily done through nasopharyngeal swabs, and sometimes through throat swabs or sputum collection.
Will it hurt?
Nasopharyngeal swabs can be a little uncomfortable for a moment, but should not be painful. Kyla has less-invasive nasal, throat and sputum tests available as well.
Will I need to get out of my car?
No, you shouldn't need to get of your car.
How long will it take to get my results?
Many factors determine how long test results may take. The average is 3-5 days.
Will you need a blood sample?
Typically no. Unless you are being tested specifically for past exposure to COVID19 (through an antibody test), we will not need a blood sample. If an antibody test is indeed ordered, it is usually just a small finger prick.
Are the tests FDA / EUA approved?
Kyla uses CDC recommended molecular tests. Kyla works with national laboratories and all tests are FDA or EUA approved.
