I was told (employer) that it would take 4 days and I would receive the
result by text.
Is this correct?

I got my last one in under 12 hours by text and email.

It can take up to 5 days. I had a drive thru test which came back in 24 hours but weekly care home tests are very late, coming back in 72 plus hours!

DD2 and I had a drive-through one yesterday morning at 10am. The result was emailed back at 4.15 this morning. Thankfully negative.

depends where it's done but I had one done earlier in a drive through site. Told probably within 24 hours, almost certainly within 48.

I had my results the same day at a regional testing site.

Dh and I had drive through test results took 25 hours. Dm had an at home one. Results took 3 days.

Where are you? I usually get mine back by email at 6am the next day (London drive thru)

My postal test was collected by postie at 16.15 yesterday and I got the result at 15.41 today by email. Pretty impressive I thought. The leaflet says within 48 hours of being collected.

Went to drive through mine back within 22hours
