We appreciate everyone’s patience as we wait for test results from our COVID-19 testing event on June 26, and from those who were tested at our Olathe office this week. The labs that Johnson County Department of Health and Environment sends specimens to are overwhelmed with processing COVID-19 tests, and results are taking longer than usual. Normally we receive test results in 5-7 business days, but it could take a few extra days due to this delay and the holiday.
JCDHE is working swiftly to call anyone with a positive result, so they can immediately begin a case investigation. Those with a negative result will receive a letter in the mail.
