With 42% of Ohio residents having received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, businesses are gearing up to welcome their employees back to the office and events are looking towards large gatherings this summer. But just because the vaccine is ready doesn’t mean it’s time to let your guard down. Getting a same-day onsite Covid test for your business or event in Columbus can help you do your part to prevent a cluster of cases.
Why choose an onsite Covid test for your business or event?
Onsite Covid testing is a preventative measure you can take to screen large groups of people quickly. This enables you to safely host an event or provide a safe workplace for your employees. Within 30 minutes, you can know who is infected and who isn’t and quickly take steps to break the chain of transmission.
How does a same-day onsite Covid test work?
Whether you need onsite testing for businesses or large events, the process is simple. A nurse (or team of nurses, depending on the size of your group) will come to your location with all of the equipment necessary. They will set up a designated testing location, typically in an empty office or other out-of-the-way area, and perform Covid-19 tests on all participants.
Depending on the type of rapid test you choose, results will be available within 15 – 30 minutes.
What are your rapid testing options?
This brings us to your rapid Covid-19 testing options. If you want a test with same-day results, you have two options.
- Rapid antigen test: A nasal swab diagnostic that is designed to detect certain proteins that coat the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This test is very fast and can return results in 15 minutes, but has a slightly higher rate of returning incorrect results.
- Accula rapid PCR test: A nasal swab diagnostic that detects specific genetic markers belonging to Covid-19. This test is highly accurate and can return results in 30 minutes.
