On-site testing is using a Rapid Antigen Test that detects the active presence of Sars-CoV-2.
The rapid antigen tests are an anterior nares nasal collection. A nasal swab will be inserted into the nasal cavity until there is resistance (approx 1 to 1.5 inches).
The swab is rotated approximately 10 times for a thorough sample collection.
Our system scans QR codes to quickly look up your registration record for check-in during the appointment. It also prevents excessive lines.
Once the sample is collected the sample is taken directly to the lab station for processing which takes about 15 minutes for results. However, once your sample is collected, you are free to leave.
