09 Jul On-Site COVID-19 Testing for Businesses
In-office Covid-19 testing for small and large businesses is an easy way to identify if a workspace has been exposed to the virus. Proactive testing enables you to make informed decisions about how to mitigate the spread of the virus to keep both customers and employees safe.
What Is In-Office Covid-19 Testing?
In-office Covid-19 testing takes place at your convenience, whether you’re a restaurant, a retail shop, or a corporate office space.
We use a nasal swab test, a simple and fast process during which a clinician will collect a sample from the inside of your nasal passages to look for presence of an active Covid-19 infection. Point of care tests have results available on the same day. Other tests require the sample to be sent to a lab, where it is placed under observation for several days.
How does in-office testing work?
Concierge MD sets up a testing area at your place of business, usually in a private room or office. There, one of our nurses performs the nasal swab test. Once the samples have been collected, they are shipped to our lab for analysis.
Who should get tested?
- Businesses who want to resume operations safely and ensure that all their employees are COVID-free.
- Anyone on staff who is symptomatic.
- Anyone on staff who has been within 6 feet of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
When will I know the results?
Results are usually ready within 3 business days of the test.
Who can see the test results?
All employees who consent to being tested sign a consent form prior to the procedure, and both the employee and employer can see the results.
In-Office Antibody Testing
In addition to rapid antigen tests and the RT-PCR test, Concierge MD also offers antibody testing. Unlike the nasal swab test, which looks for signs of an active infection, the antibody test seeks out antibodies that are symptomatic of a previous infection.
Antibody tests can Identify who has already had Covid-19 in order to help you safely reopen your business.
How quickly can I expect results?
These results are also generally ready within 3 business days of the test.
What happens if an employee tests positive?
The CDC has the latest recommendations for businesses with Covid-positive staff.
