How do I order a COVID-19 test?
You may purchase a COVID-19 test without a provider's order through QuestDirect.
COVID-19 antibody testing is also available for purchase without a provider's order.
To be tested for COVID-19, the flu, and RSV with a single specimen, you will need a doctor's order and is not available at DLO through QuestDirect.
Getting test results through MyQuest
Confirm that your healthcare provider is sending your PCR or the IgG antibody test specimens to DLO for processing. If so, your test results can be automatically sent to you through the secure MyQuest online portal. This is typically the quickest way to get results.

DLO’s Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 (formally known as 2019-nCoV) is the name for the respiratory syndrome caused by infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma (DLO) is monitoring the situation closely and bolstering our preparedness. Our priority is the health and safety of our employees, patients and the communities we serve. The content below provides information for providers and others to help guide their management of patients. We encourage providers to periodically check this web page for updates on our response.
Testing for COVID-19
Through our relationship with Quest Diagnostics, DLO began PCR testing for COVID-19 on March 9, 2020. As of April 21, DLO began providing COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody serology test which can identify individuals who have developed a serological response. The PCR test specimen collection is to be performed only using respiratory specimens collected from individuals who meet CDC clinical and/or epidemiological criteria for COVID-19 testing. DLO Patient Service Centers and other phlebotomy sites cannot collect specimens for the PCR test, but the IgG serology test is a routine blood collection and can be drawn at a DLO location with a provider's order.
Patients: Most DLO Patient Service Centers can collect for COVID-19 PCR testing as long as you are asymptomatic or have mild cold-like symptoms. If you have active flu-like symptoms including fever, please contact your healthcare provider and do not go to a DLO location for specimen collection.
