Public Health @ Tan Schedule



NOTICE: Please note the following changes to the HIV Testing schedule for The AIDS Network in November and December -

Due to staffing, there will be no testing on Tuesday November 28th. 

Due to the holidays, the testing date in December will occur on the third Tuesday of the month (December 19th) 

We will return to our regular schedule (the last Tuesday of every month) in January (January 30th).  

 

Anonymous HIV Testing

In anonymous testing, the name or identity of the person being tested is not requested, recorded or reported. The test is ordered using a code known only to the person being tested.

Point of Care HIV Testing or Rapid Testing

Point of care testing is done by pricking your finger and testing your blood while you wait. If you test negative - that is, the point of care test says you are not infected - you receive your results immediately. If you test reactive - that is, the result of the point of care test is not certain - the clinic will take a blood sample and send it to the public health laboratory for standard testing. It can take up to two weeks to get the final results, and you will have to return to the clinic to get your results.

Standard HIV Testing

Standard HIV testing is done by taking a blood sample and sending it to the public health laboratory. It can take up to two weeks to get the results, and you have to return to your healthcare provider or clinic to receive the results.
