My Personal Records users have access to test results ordered from all sites in Alberta, including labs obtained during inpatient and emergency visits.

Your test results will be available to you as soon as they are available, which is usually within 24 hours. The most recent COVID-19 test results are included.

New users will see an 18-month retrospective view of any lab results slated for release. Existing users will not have labs added retroactively, but they will be able to see the expanded lab results moving forward.
