Did anyone have a test on the morning and get results back by the end of the day?

Had my test at 9.30am and the person said the samples are taken twice a day to the place that checks them (100 miles away)

Just wonder if anyone got results the same day.

I have read maybe 35788 of the 1354654867 other threads about how long test results take to come back and I can confidently tell you that it will take between a few hours and never

HTH

Oh a few hours hey, great.

Huge apologies to you for coming on a coronavirus specific chat forum and asking a question.
Who do I think I am these days?
I should have known to read 1375482 threads for the answer.
Crazy cat that I am.

We have had this a couple of times but our test centre is basically next door to the lab (Glasgow Airport).so suspect a twice daily pick up would be slower.

You may get an email overnight as recent threads seem to suggest these come through earlier than a text.

Back in September I was tested at 11.30am and got the results at 3.30am the next day.

No need to read all the ohers, the one started just a few hours before yours in this topic asking pretty much the same queston would have worked just as well.

Thank you so much for your replies. Helpful.

@satnighttakeaway why is it you frequent chat forums if you can’t deal with someone innocently asking a question?
I how you are ok and it’s not an underlying cry for help that you are sad.
Have a good day.

I had a test at 10.30 am and received the results by email at 10.00pm that day. This was in May.

Careful OP - didn't you know you're only allowed to post completely original questions?! Big and important people might waste 3 seconds of their lives reading it.

I've got toddlers who are wracking up tests. It's averaged 28 hours ish

Yes but that was in August. I got one back in 25 hours in Oct though

No. But last week I had a test at 11am and got results in the night, woke up to them.

firesong Mon 16-Nov-20 18:05:10

I also had a test with no results ever (home test)

Another one took 36 hours.

I just got positive email notification 13 hours after testing- midlands

legalseagull Tue 17-Nov-20 09:32:18

Just has one back after 22 hours

cathyandclare Tue 17-Nov-20 09:34:38

Yes, but in the summer my last one was around 60 hours

West London, test done at 9.30am yesterday morning. Results came in overnight at 3.30am.

4 days for us in London.

Just had a test at 9.30 am for random symptoms (none of the big 3) as was asked to by the Zoe app so will be interesting to hear how quick some are coming back. In July mine was 22 hours, then my daughter had a rest in September, hers took 24 hours
