Why is my postal pcr test taking so long.A PCR Tester Has Lifted The Lid On Why You’re Waiting Ages For A COVID Test Result
The Commonwealth has funded General Practices to establish specialised Respiratory Clinics for people with respiratory symptoms to be assessed and tested as required separate from regular GP waiting and consulting rooms.

Related: Lockdown Learning , discuss home schooling during lockdown. My son was tested at 8am yesterday morning at a drive through site. Whenever we’ve been before we’ve had the results within about 14 hours. I know it’s only been 36 hours and they say five days, but do you think it’s worth calling?
He’s missed two days of school and can’t miss a third mock exams very soon. I’m also worried it’s a bad sign – the past tests have been negative. Can’t help but wonder if they double check the positive ones and that’s why it’s taking longer. Went for another test, results came back in 12 hours. Obviously lost in the system somewhere.
Maryann thanks for replying. That doesn’t sound very promising. Oh dear. Do I take him for another test tomorrow in case they’ve lost it? I must admit I’m tempted to ignore it and assume it was just a brief cold. He had a really bad cold a few weeks ago then on Monday night had a sore throat and a bit of a cough. The only reason I did a Covid test was because someone at school he knows has Covid.
Wouldn’t have crossed my mind otherwise and he’s not coughed since. Oh what a mess! Waiting here too. Two weeks ago my kids came back within 12 hrs. I’m on 36 hrs now. Though sure I’m positive. Loads of strong pos lfts. I did hear from someone else that test demand is really high. We are waiting for our test results taken yesterday at although my two children have had their results – positive one emailed at 12pm today and negative at 2pm. My other child tested at 9am on Monday and positive confirmation email was sent at 5am yesterday so I’m not sure what is happening!
Justwingingit oh poor you! Have you been vaccinated? I was really hoping that being jabbed would mean we get it quite mildly. Sorry you’re feeling rubbish and hope you feel better soon!
I didn’t get results from my Saturday test until yesterday. Think they’re busy at the moment. I have a positive result within 24 hours. The local walk in one we had back within 12 hours but the postal one is taking forever!! It did feel like the priority postbox was jammed with them to be fair. A very hollow boxy sound when I posted it and it didn’t drop far inside. My son has Covid now at the start his main symptom was a sore throat and bit of a cough.
He already had a cough from a previous respiratory virus. I wouldn’t assume it’s another cold. Ours negative results finally came through at 10pm last night, 10 hours after my son’s positive one although they were done at the same time.
