Collect2Protect/Express Testing Online Results
Welcome to the Southern Nevada Health District Online Lab Results Portal. This portal makes it easy to get results from tests for certain infectious (communicable) diseases if the sample was collected at home or private location through the online Collect2Protect or Express Testing project. By providing the information below, you are confirming you were the individual tested or the parent/guardian of that individual. For security purposes, you only have three attempts to provide the information needed to verify your identity. After three missed attempts, your account will be locked for five minutes for security purposes.
What does a negative result mean?
A negative result doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have HIV. This is due to the window period.
If you test again after the window period, have no possible HIV exposure during the window period, and the result comes back negative, you do not have HIV.
If you have certain risk factors, you should continue getting tested at least once a year. Learn more about who is at risk for HIV and why they should be tested more often.
If I have a negative result, does that mean my partner is HIV-negative also?
No. Your HIV test result reveals only your HIV status.
HIV is not necessarily transmitted every time you have sex or share needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment. And the risk of getting HIV varies depending on the type of exposure or behavior. It is important to remember that taking an HIV test is not a way to find out if your partner has HIV.
It’s important to be open with your partners and ask them to tell you their HIV status. But keep in mind that your partners may not know or may be wrong about their status, and some may not tell you if they have HIV even if they are aware of their status. Consider getting tested together so you can both know your HIV status and take steps to keep yourselves healthy.
What does a positive result mean?
If you use any type of antibody test and have a positive result, you will need another (follow-up) test to confirm your results.
If you test positive at home, please follow up with SNHD staff by calling 702-759-1518 for follow up testing. We are here to help.
It is important that you start medical care and begin HIV treatment as soon as you are diagnosed with HIV. Antiretroviral therapy or ART (taking medicine to treat HIV infection) is recommended for all people with HIV, regardless of how long they’ve had the virus or how healthy they are. HIV medicine works by lowering the amount of virus in your body to very low levels. HIV medicine can make the viral load so low that a test can’t detect it (called an undetectable viral load). HIV medicine slows the progression of HIV and helps protect your immune system. If you take HIV medicine as prescribed and get and keep an undetectable viral load, you can stay healthy for many years. Having an undetectable viral load also helps prevent transmitting the virus to others. For example, if you have an undetectable viral load, you have effectively no risk of transmitting HIV to an HIV-negative partner through sex.
