COVID-19

COVID-19 TESTING

 

COVID-19 is unique because people who are not experiencing symptoms (asymptomatic) may still have the virus and be spreading the disease to others. As such, early detection is key to flattening the curve and halting the spread.

Whether you are experiencing symptoms, recently visited a high-risk area, been in contact with a high-risk person, or simply would like some peace of mind, we offer at-home COVID-19 testing solutions. We are able to send both tests straight to you and will guide you through the process of collecting your own samples. Our tests are simple, efficient, and up to 99% accurate.

PCR Testing

We offer a swab test for COVID-19 – the test will be done at home and the sample will be processed directly by Pathlab, our laboratory partner. Pathlab will return the results to us within 2-3 days and we will then contact you.

Disclaimer: Accuracy and results are based on the information provided by the manufacturer.  Sensitivity is low in the first two weeks of COVID-19 exposure therefore this test should not be used as a timely diagnostic test for COVID-19 alone. Even with a negative test, you should seek medical advice if you experience any changes in your symptoms. We strongly recommend adhering to the health and safety guidelines outlined by the Department Of Health and to consult with a doctor for any concerns.
