Dh started to cough yesterday evening. It was a very mild chesty cough, no fever, no any other symptoms. It not getting any worse this morning. But just to be safe, we got ourselves tested first thing today.

The problem is dd is going back to school from Monday. Should we inform the school and wait until the results come back? The staffs at the test center told us it would take up to 72 hours. Anyone with recent experience on how long it will actually take? I'm still hoping it could come back negative before Monday and dd could go back to school as planned.

Mine came back in 29 hours, one colleagues came back in 17, another colleagues took 74

I suppose it depends on the lab and how many tests they are processing but having it first thing this morning was good.
