Step 1 :Initial screening, Nose and throat swab if needed, at the designated hospitals for each city. Hospitals that do the initial screening, are listed further on in this document. The hospital that collected the sample will call only the patients (as per the number provided at the time of sample collection) whose reports come out positive, they do not call to inform if the reports are negative for COVID-19. The patient/attendant can call the hospital with the hospital number to know the reports, anytime from 40-72 hours, from the time the samples were collected.

Step 2: Self-quarantine at home while you wait for results as the incubation period for this is 14 days. Continue, if symptoms persist for a month and stay away from all public places, contact with family too, only from a distance of 3 feet. Please refer to the guidelines for self-quarantine in the Resources section
