Why Everlywell
Coronavirus disease (also called COVID-19) is an infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus), one of the most recently discovered types of coronaviruses. Those who have this disease may or may not experience symptoms, which range from mild to severe.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
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 highest need.

The criteria prioritizes people who are:
  • Currently experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath
  • 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 that limit your daily activities. Seek medical attention right away if this is the case.
  • Do not have symptoms and have not been exposed to 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.
This test kit is available in 44 states. Due to existing FDA restrictions our test kit is not available in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.
