Reporting Instructions:

  • Symptomatic- If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (please refer to the FAQ for examples), please contact the WPMC appointment line and schedule a virtual appointment with one of the hospital providers. If you are symptomatic and have been instructed by a MDG provider to report to the trailer for testing, please follow the parking lot directions for scheduled drive through testing. 
  • Asymptomatic- Any patients not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms but have been directed to complete COVID-19 testing from a WPMC PCM or specialist should enter the parking lot through the aforementioned entrance, follow the directional signs for drive-thru parking.


  • The lab ships out all COVID-19 tests to the Area B lab at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mon. through Sat., any tests accomplished after 1:30 p.m. will be sent out for testing the following day.
  • Results:
    • Positive COVID-19 labs: Patients will be notified the same day the provider receives results
    • Negative COVID-19 results: Patients can expect a phone call from the PCM team within 6 business days
    • Other labs obtained at the CST are subject to the MDG laboratory team processing and vary in length of reporting time.  PCMs are notified within 1 hour of any abnormal test results, and patients are notified shortly thereafter.
    • Electronic communication:
      • Send a MiCare/Relay Health/ Secure Message to your PCM team requesting results
      • Log-in to TricareOnline Patient Portal à Health Record à Laboratory Results (left side bar)
        • Please note there is a known error with the COVID-19 lab name, and all COVID-19 tests performed at WPMC are PCR and not antibody tests, this is a Tricare error, and we have no timeline for corrections.
    • Due to the large volume of calls to the ATC phone line, the primary care clinics request patients refrain from calling the ATC line for results, until 7 business days after accomplishing testing, as it causes further delays in delivering results.

Other Testing Locations:

Any patients without a documented need for testing can obtain testing off-base at any number of locations.  Please visit the Ohio Department of Health website for locations, to include free pop-up testing locations, dates and times (more added frequently).
