Please be advised that after coming into contact with these infections, it can take some time for viral levels to rise to a detectable amount. Therefore we do advise an incubation period of 90 days. If you have taken a test within 90 days of suspected exposure, we reccomend that you take another test, after the 90th day mark passes. The test should be performed after the incubation period or, if a negative result is received before the incubation period, we recommend performing a confirmatory test after the advised incubation period.
