Coronavirus: COVID-19 Testing On-Site
Whether you’re trying to keep your NYC business safe for your employees, or holding a large event, ensuring everyone involved is COVID-19 free is important to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Bulk Rapid COVID-19 Testing, Fast Results
At Statcare, we provide bulk COVID-19 testing on-site & coronavirus screenings for businesses and special events.
These tests (known as rapid antigen COVID-19 tests) are perfect for large groups as they can provide results in just 15-20 minutes, allowing more individuals to be tested at once than standard COVID-19 PCR tests.
The rapid COVID-19 test we offer at Statcare has been granted EUA (emergency use authorization) from the FDA. This allows us to administer the test in certain situations such as large gatherings taking place or businesses wanting to stay compliant with COVID-19 policies.
The test itself — known as the Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA — is a point-of-care system that takes nasal swab samples and rapidly analyzes them to check for existing COVID-19 infections.
With COVID-19 testing on-site and coronavirus screenings, NYC businesses and gatherings can create a safe environment for all.
Why On-Site Testing Matters
As our lives begin to return to some form of normalcy, NYC residents are going back to work and once again hosting special events — such as weddings, engagement parties, etc.
Additionally, schools are looking to reopen soon as well. Providing quick on-site testing for everyone involved helps prevent the spread of the virus.
According to the CDC, COVID-19 primarily spreads person-to-person (through respiratory droplets) so if you’re hosting an event or have a business that involves employees working closely with each other, making sure everyone is tested is critical.
