Why Everlywell
Questions?
“Coronavirus Disease 2019” (referred to widely as COVID-19, or coronavirus) is the respiratory disease caused by the “SARS-CoV2” virus. It was recently identified in Wuhan, China, and has spread globally. There has been an increasing number of cases reported in the United States, and it has become a global public health emergency. As of March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified COVID-19 as a pandemic.
COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales, droplets containing the virus go into the air and onto surfaces and objects around them. Other people are exposed to the virus by breathing in these droplets or by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth after touching infected surfaces.
Most people have mild symptoms. Severe cases are more likely to occur in older adults (above 60 years of age), as well as pregnant women, those with weakened immune systems, and those with underlying health issues (such as lung disease, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, kidney or liver disease, cancer, transplant, and AIDS). However, serious disease can also occur in younger adults.
COVID-19 is very contagious. The risk of getting COVID-19 depends on many factors, including where you live, recent travel history, and close contact with people who have symptoms. It is important to comply with any local travel restrictions and to protect yourself from exposure if you are in a city or area where the disease is spreading.
SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after a person is exposed to the virus. The most common symptoms include:
  • Fever
  • New or worsening cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Other symptoms may include:
  • Tiredness
  • Body or muscle aches
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Flu-like symptoms
Cases of COVID-19 range from mild to severe. Most people have reported mild symptoms and in some cases don’t have any symptoms. More severe and fatal cases have been seen in older adults and those with weakened immune systems or underlying health issues (such as lung disease, diabetes, heart disease, kidney or liver disease, cancer, transplant, and AIDS). Recent data suggests that young adults may also be severely impacted. However, serious disease can also occur in younger adults.
Treatment currently focuses on managing symptoms, and protecting your family and community through self-isolate. Not all patients with COVID-19 will require medical attention, and most people recover within 2 weeks without any specific treatment. For severe cases, hospitalization may be required. Your healthcare provider can help you determine whether monitoring your condition from home or a hospital is most appropriate for you. This decision will be made on a case-by-case basis and will likely be based on several factors including your medical history and current symptoms. If you and your healthcare provider determine that you will monitor your condition from home, ask if they recommend over-the-counter medications, and be sure to rest, hydrate, and eat a balanced diet as best you can. At this time, there is no vaccine or antiviral drugs approved by the FDA to prevent or treat patients with COVID-19.
You will be asked to complete a screening questionnaire, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), before purchase in order to prioritize COVID-19 tests for people with the most urgent need. We recommend this test if you:
  • Currently have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • Currently have respiratory symptoms and live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
  • Have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19. Close contact includes being within 6 feet (2 meters) of someone with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time or having direct contact with the fluids of someone with COVID-19 (such as being coughed on)
  • Think you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
If you’re experiencing severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, seek medical attention right away. The CDC recommends calling your healthcare provider or facility to let them know that you may have COVID-19 which will help them to take steps to keep others from being exposed. At this time we are only able to offer testing for those 18 years and older. Please see our FAQ here.
This test may not be helpful if you:
  • Currently have severe symptoms. Seek medical attention right away if this is the case.
  • Do not have symptoms and have not been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Do not have symptoms and have not been to an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
Note: If you are a healthcare professional, consult your place of work for guidance about testing, whether you should stay home, and when you should return to work. You should follow the testing recommendations set forth by your employer as they may differ from the CDC’s guidelines.
You should get tested if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of having close contact with that person or if that person later tests positive for COVID-19. Close contact includes being within approximately 6 feet of that person for a prolonged period of time or having direct contact with their fluids, like being coughed on.
You should get tested if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of having close contact with someone with COVID-19. Close contact includes being within approximately 6 feet of that person for a prolonged period of time or having direct contact with their fluids, like being coughed on.
You should not get tested unless you have had close contact with that person and develop symptoms within 14 days of exposure. Close contact includes being within approximately 6 feet of that person for a prolonged period of time or having direct contact with their fluids, like being coughed on.
Knowing whether you have COVID-19 can help you prevent spread of the virus by taking important measures like self-quarantine. As many public health organizations have pointed out, COVID-19 shares many symptoms with the flu, the common cold, even allergies, so it's important to know.
Due to the global manufacturing constraints, supplies will be limited to start so we are limiting purchases to one test per household. We expect to expand our supply weekly.
The COVID-19 Test is an rt-PCR-focused test that looks for the presence or absence of unique genomic markers of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in nasopharyngeal swab and saliva/sputum samples.
The COVID-19 Test is an rt-PCR-focused test that uses nasopharyngeal swab and saliva/sputum samples. This is the same methodology as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and being used in hospitals for the majority of COVID-19 diagnostic testing today.
Like any Everlywell test, our COVID-19 Test is delivered in discreet packaging and taken in the privacy of your own home. Once you use the included materials to collect and safely store your sample, use the included FedEx overnight shipping envelope to return your test sample to our CLIA-certified partner lab. Once received, your sample will be processed within 24-48 hours, and you will be emailed when your results are ready. You will then be able to access your results through an easy-to-understand report on our secure online platform.
Like our other tests, the COVID-19 Test will come with everything you need to collect a sample at home (generally in five minutes or less) and safely ship your sample to a CLIA-certified laboratory. You will use the COVID-19 Test kit to collect two samples that can be used to diagnose COVID-19: a nasopharyngeal swab and a saliva/sputum sample. See our collection instructions here at everlywell.com/collect. In order to get your sample to our labs as quickly as possible, we provide a prepaid overnight FedEx mailer for you to drop your sample at a FedEx drop-box location on the same day you collect. Your digital results will be available within 24-48 hours of the lab receiving your sample.

This test will tell you whether you have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19, or coronavirus.

Individuals with positive results will be offered a telehealth consult with an independent board-certified physician or other healthcare professional.

If you have a positive test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19. There is a very small chance that this test can give a positive result that is wrong (a false positive result). Your healthcare provider will work with you to determine how best to care for you based on the test results along with medical history, and your symptoms.

Treatment includes managing symptoms and limiting your exposure to other people to protect from spread of disease.

COVID-19 is a reportable disease and your results will be reported to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and federal public health authorities to help inform the crucial ongoing public health response.

In certain cases, you may not receive a definitive result because of early infection or inadequate sampling. If this happens you will be contacted directly by our telehealth provider to help you with planning your next steps.

A negative test result means that the virus that causes COVID-19 was not found in your sample. For COVID-19, a negative test result for a sample collected while a person has symptoms usually means that COVID-19 did not cause your recent illness. However, it is possible for this test to give a negative result that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with COVID-19. This means that you could possibly still have COVID-19 even though the test is negative. If this is the case, your healthcare provider will consider the test result together with all other aspects of your medical history (such as symptoms, possible exposures, and geographical location of places you have recently traveled) in deciding how to care for you. It is important that you work with your healthcare provider to help you understand the next steps you should take.

The symptoms for all of these conditions can be similar: fever, sore throat, cough, and respiratory symptoms. The only way to know for sure whether you have COVID-19 is to test positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Positive results for COVID-19 are considered “reportable diseases” and must be communicated to mandated federal and state public health reporting agencies. This information is used to track new infections for the purpose of public health awareness and response. Your results will not be shared with your insurance company or any healthcare providers (other than the independent telehealth provider performing oversight services for the test), unless you choose to share your results with your healthcare provider.
We are pricing the test as low as possible at no profit to Everlywell. The costs associated with bringing this test to you are published here. We have reached out to government and public health officials to see if we can offer the test for free. We believe that at-home sample collection is key to preventing further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results will be available 3-5 days from purchase (time for overnight shipping to the lab is included). You have the option of purchasing expedited overnight shipping to your home. All kits include prepaid FedEx overnight shipping to quickly transport your sample to the lab.
Everlywell provides detailed instructions in our kit and online for safe collection and transport of samples. We provide the appropriate shipping materials to safely ship your sample to our partner labs following the recommendations provided by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN). We recommend that our customers take precautionary measures when collecting their sample by washing their hands thoroughly, disinfecting surfaces where they will be completing their test and using the provided alcohol prep pad to disinfect the shipping sleeve before placing your sample in the mail (though be sure to not wipe the shipping label which could impact legibility).
Samples are generally stable for 4 days, but our goal is for samples to arrive at our labs as fast as possible — within 24-48 hours of collection. We provide our customers a prepaid FedEx envelope for overnight shipping and ask that they ship on the same day they collect.
In certain cases, if you are not able to provide an adequate sample, it is possible that our lab will not be able to determine your test results. A member from our telehealth partner will reach out to help you determine next steps and likely recommend that you self-isolate to avoid community spread if you are experiencing symptoms. We recognize that the nasopharyngeal swab can be uncomfortable and at-home testing is new for many. We are the leader in teaching people how to collect finger-prick blood, stool and other swab samples. We try to make sample collection as simple and straightforward as possible through printed instructions in your kit, as well as digital and video instructions at everlywell.com/collect and provided via email. Our customer care staff is available if you have any questions.
Currently the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) guidance for diagnostic lab testing for COVID-19 recommends testing both upper respiratory tract specimens (nasopharyngeal swab) and lower respiratory tract specimens (sputum), if available.
Your Everlywell purchase can be submitted for reimbursement through HSA/FSA benefits. As always, be sure to check with your specific HSA/FSA benefits coordinator for clarification on the specific requirements for reimbursement including usage, protocol, and qualifications.
A potential aid package that could help make coronavirus testing free for many Americans was announced recently and has been gaining momentum through Congress. We have reached out to elected officials to see how we can be involved - we would love to provide this test for free! As it stands, we are pricing the test as low as possible while covering our costs, so we are not making a profit.
There are currently no vaccines for COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself is to avoid situations in which you may be exposed to the virus. Everyday actions can help protect you and prevent the spread of respiratory diseases such as COVID-19.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Restrict any activities outside your home and maintain a safe distance (around 6 feet) between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This includes avoiding crowded areas, shopping malls, religious gatherings, public transportation, etc.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water aren’t available. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

It is important to note that facemasks should not be worn as protection from COVID-19 and should only be used by individuals who show symptoms to help prevent spreading it to others.

This test is available in 47 states. Due to existing restrictions in the state of New York, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, our test is not available in the state.
You do not need to do anything to prepare for the test. Further instructions will be provided to you at the lab or in your test.

Individuals who have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 should self-quarantine for 14 days after possible exposure. This also applies to individuals who have recently traveled to countries where COVID-19 is spreading. During this time period, you should monitor your symptoms closely to see if you get sick. Call your healthcare provider right away if you develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath).

The below information is for household members, intimate partners, and caregivers of a person who have tested positive for COVID-19, or who do not have symptoms, but who may have been exposed.

Monitor your health
  • Call your healthcare provider right away if you develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath)
Separate yourself
  • Household members should stay in another room or be separated from the patient as much as possible
  • Use a separate bedroom and bathroom, if possible
  • Limit visitors who do not need to be in the home
  • Make sure that shared spaces in the home have good airflow and ventilation
Provide help and support
  • Help the patient follow their healthcare provider’s instructions
  • Help the patient with basic needs in the home, such as getting groceries, prescriptions, and other personal needs
  • Help care for any pets in the home
  • Monitor the patient’s symptoms
  • If the patient is getting sicker, help them seek medical attention
Keep facemasks and disposable gloves
  • The patient should wear a facemask when they are around other people
  • If the patient is not able to wear a facemask, you should wear a mask when you are in the same room as them
  • Wear a disposable facemask and gloves when you touch or have contact with the patient’s body fluids, such as saliva, mucus, blood, stool, vomit, or urine
  • Wear disposable gloves while handling soiled items and keep soiled items away from your body
  • Throw out disposable face masks and gloves after using and do not reuse them
  • Wash hands or use alcohol based hand sanitizer after removing gloves, and again after removing face masks
Discuss any additional questions with your healthcare provider or a local / state health department official.
Self-isolation and self-quarantine are both ways to limit interaction with others and prevent the spread of disease.
  • Self-isolation: Separating sick people from people who are not sick. Individuals are separated for a period of time until they are no longer infectious
  • Self-quarantine: Separating individuals who may have been exposed to a contagious disease but haven’t been tested. They are separated for a period of time to see if they get sick
If you think you have been exposed, it is important to closely monitor for symptoms. Most mild cases of COVID-19 resolve within 2 weeks without treatment. Seek medical attention immediately if you develop severe symptoms, especially if you experience any of the following:
  • Fever greater than 102 °F (taken with a thermometer)
  • Severe difficulty breathing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain
  • Swelling in the legs
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Yellowing of skin or whites of eyes
  • Dark-colored urine or urinating less often, or in smaller amounts than usual
  • Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
  • Intense abdominal pain
If you seek medical attention, be sure to call ahead before visiting the facility. This will help the facility keep other people from possibly getting infected or exposed.
  • Tell any healthcare provider that you may have COVID-19.
  • Put on a facemask before you enter any healthcare facility.
