What testing is available for patients returning to work?
There are three types of COVID-19 tests available for employees as they prepare to return to the workplace.
- Rapid COVID testing is available for patients who need or require immediate confirmation that they currently do not have the virus. The test takes less than 30 minutes and is typically performed by swabbing the lower nasal cavity. Rapid tests have high accuracy rates when performed within manufacturers’ specifications.
- PCR COVID testing is available for patients who will need a complex lab-based confirmation that they currently do not have the virus. A gentle swab is taken of the lower nasal cavity and then brought to our partner lab for processing. Results are typically available within a few days.
- Antibody testing is available for patients who have not exhibited any symptoms of COVID-19 or exhibited symptoms before testing became more widely available. A blood draw will be taken and brought to the lab, where technicians will search for the presence of antibodies, an immune response to the virus generated about fourteen days after the body has healed. Results are typically available within 3-5 days depending on lab capacity.
