How testing at-home helps keep you and your loved ones safe

Silent and deadly, Covid-19 has impacted people around the world. Early detection of the virus is of the utmost importance to prevent the spread and save lives. Covid-19 tests are a key tool in stopping virus transmission, designed to detect an active case of the virus, whether symptoms are present or not.

Isolating at home is an essential step in decreasing infection rates. Although testing at healthcare facilities may seem like a fair option, you increase the possibility of spreading the virus to vulnerable populations or those who do not have immunity. At-home testing is quick and easy, and it allows for the comfort of knowing you are minimizing your risk of infecting others.

Additional benefits include:

  • Discounted group and family testing
  • Quick and easy scheduling
  • Having tests administered by a certified nurse
  • Minimal disruption to your day
  • No age-based restrictions

What kind of same-day tests are available?
