COVID 19 Questions
How can I tell if an employee or co-worker has COVID-19?
Many carriers of COVID-19 are asymptomatic, which means that they can not be identified by having a fever or a dry cough. This makes techniques such as temperature checks and surveys ineffective. The only way to truly tell if someone in your workplace has COVID-19 is to have them tested.
How long until I have my test results?
Avalon Laboratory Solutions has one of the fastest turnaround times in the lab industry. Your test will be processed within 24 – 48 hours of when the sample is received. Your results can then be accessed in our secure, HIPAA-compliant client portal.
What kind of businesses do you provide tests for?
We are equipped to handle large and small businesses of all kinds – retail, restaurants, healthcare providers, nursing homes, child care centers, schools, universities and more. We are able to rapidly scale for capacity, and can accept as many as 6,000 tests at once.
Can my business receive routine testing?
Through our Employee Preparedness Program, your company can receive staggered DNA tests every 2-3 weeks and antibody tests every 60 days. This will ensure that employees who have tested negative previously remain healthy and able to work.
What are the benefits of testing?
As many businesses have reopened only to find out that one or many employees have tested positive for COVID-19, testing your staff today means that you won’t need to close tomorrow. Verifying that your staff is healthy, and able to work will build confidence in your stakeholders and clientele, as well as making sure your bottom line stays above the line.
