COVID-19 Testing available for patients:
1.Reverse Transcriptase-PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) testing—this involves taking a swab from a SYMPTOMATIC patient’s nose or throat to determine if they have an ACTIVE coronavirus-19 infection. The exact sensitivity (ability to correctly identify those with the illness — true positive rate) and specificity (ability to correctly identify those who don’t have the illness—true negative rate) is not known.
2.Serology testing (Antibody Testing)-this involves taking a small sample of blood and testing it for antibodies against the COVID-19 virus. A positive test would indicate that a patient had been infected and has formed antibodies against the COVID-19. The current test offered at AFC will detect the IgG antibody against COVID-19. A positive IgG test may allow you to return to your normal activities without the worry of re-contracting COVID-19. The sensitivity and specificity of the antibody test is not yet known.
Depending on your field and position, a company you are applying to work at may require you to undergo a pre-employment physical as part of yourhiring processto make sure you are physically fit enough to perform the duties required.
