I just got my NEGATIVE results for COVID-19 after having run a slight fever last week. AMA!

Was able to easily schedule a next-day appointment through the city.

Showed up a few minutes ahead of my appointment time. Drive-through testing at a sports arena not currently in use. Super surreal / dystopian feeling. Was in and out in about fifteen minutes. They check ID and appointment confirmation. They give you some instructions (keep window rolled up). Then they ask you to crack window, give you bag with the test, and then send you onto the person who will guide you through the test.

Mouth swab. 10 seconds on each cheek and on roof of mouth. Place dwab into a tube that has some liquid in it. Put the tube in the bag, seal the bag. Throw the bag into a bin. Done.

Got results back in three days.
