Providing Your Team Peace of Mind
Healthcare workers, first responders, food service workers, and local businesses have all supported our community through the COVID-19 pandemic without the option to work from home. Now that more workforce members are being recalled, employers need to offer their staff access to easy testing options to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Urgentology Care is pleased to announce our employer COVID-19 testing program. Read on to learn how to provide you and your entire team some peace of mind:
Onsite and Clinic Testing
To make testing easier for you and your employees, we offer onsite and in-clinic testing options. Our corporate COVID-19 testing is administered via contract, and upon signing up, we will discuss whether you want your employees to come into our clinic for testing or if you want us to come to you. While onsite testing reduces downtime, we’re happy to set up appointments at our clinic for your employees as well.
Learn more about the COVID-19 tests we offer:
Rapid Antigen Tests
For quick testing, the rapid antigen test is appropriate for employers to test if an employee is actively infected with COVID-19. This test is administered via a nasal or nose and throat (nasopharyngeal) swab, and tests come back within 15 minutes.
Molecular PCR Tests
The PCR test is considered the ‘gold standard’ of COVID-19 testing, as it’s the most accurate way to tell if a patient currently has the coronavirus. This test is administered via a nasopharyngeal swab, and results take 3-5+ days.
Our COVID-19 antibody test can tell an employer if their employee recently tested positive for COVID-19 but is not currently sick. If an employee was exposed, they will have coronavirus antibodies in their blood. To administer this test, we take a sample of blood. Results typically come back in 1-2 days.
In addition to testing your employees, our team also recommends monitoring their symptoms daily by checking for flu/cold-like symptoms when the employee comes in for their shift. If an employee has a fever alongside other symptoms, they should be tested and sent home.
