Screening for colon cancer with Cologuard during COVID-19

In light of the developments of COVID-19, we want to proactively provide information to you about screening for colorectal cancer.  

Exact Sciences' testing labs remain fully operational. All sites have plans in place to ensure service for patients during this unprecedented time. Read this letter from our CEO, Kevin Conroy, to learn about what we’re doing as a company to operate safely and effectively.

Because Cologuard®, a non-invasive CRC screening option for average-risk adults 45 and older, can be done at home, you can use Cologuard during this pandemic, even while staying home to avoid exposure to or spreading the virus. You can ask your regular healthcare provider or an online prescriber if Cologuard is right for you, without an in-office visit. If they prescribe Cologuard for you, the collection kit is sent directly to your home, and UPS can pick it up for you without social interaction.

Below, we answer questions you may have about using Cologuard during the COVID-19 pandemic.   

For additional questions about Cologuard, please call the Exact Sciences Laboratories Customer Care Center at 1-844-870-8870.
