Workplace COVID-19 Testing for Employees
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our daily life and how-and-where we work. It presents unprecedented challenges for any employer seeking to provide a healthy working environment. To help mitigate some of the uncertainty, on March 18, 2020, the EEOC issued updated guidance for employers considering screening and testing protocols for employees.
TotalWellness is proud to offer nationwide testing for COVID-19. Currently we offer four options:
- Antigen testing. Antigen tests look for pieces of proteins that make up the SARS-CoV-2 virus to determine if the person has an active infection. Results are available in 15 minutes.
- The COVID-19 PCR test uses a self-collection nasal swab to detect the presence of the underlying virus that causes COVID-19. Our will be available on-site for assistance with sample collection and shipment, with results available in 48-72 hours.
- A saliva-based molecular test that can be easily collected. Results are available online within four days We can also provide home test kits if your team is working remote.
The COVID-19 antibody test determines the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and helps identify individuals who may have been exposed to the virus. This test is available as a dried blood spot fingerstick test which can be performed conveniently at your facility, with results available in 48-72 hours.
