We are all faced with the dilemma of getting back to work while also mitigating the threat of a coronavirus outbreak interrupting operations. Following CDC Guidelines on social distancing and sanitation is a great start. However, testing and tracking is the only way to break the chain of infection. At present, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and antibody testing are the two most common methods of testing for SAR-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. PCR tests are used to directly detect the presence of the virus, rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. By detecting viral RNA, you can tell whether someone has the virus very early on.
COVID-19 PCR Swab Testing.
Total Safety has the resources and capacity to offer the PCR test to your entire workforce. Our Credentialed Medical Team will bring all the resources required to set up a testing site to administer PCR testing. Total Safety has partnered with multiple labs across the country to get the patient fast results. In most cases we can have results to the patient within 72 hours of delivery at the lab. This saves valuable time when an employee may be in quarantine and unable to work.
PCR Testing Service can be layered on with Antibody Tests
Our COVID-19 PCR testing can be set up to run in tandem with antibody testing. Antibody testing is a simple finger stick and only takes ten (10) minutes to obtain results. Antibody testing can reveal two markers: (IgM) indicating more recent infection, and (IgG) indicating a past infection. Total Safety recommends that any patient showing signs of either marker receive a PCR test which can indicate if the person is actively infected and a potential threat to your workforce.
