Blood testing

If an employee is displaying COVID-19 symptoms such as a continuous cough, fever, and shortness of breath, another way to test for the active virus (SARS-CoV-2) is by a blood test. 

Our nurses, who are also trained phlebotomists, will take a blood sample and send it to a lab for testing. Test results will usually come back within 72 hours, and after conducting the test, our nurses would recommend employees go home and self-isolate, along with anyone else in their household, until the results are back.

If more immediate results are desired, we can use COVID-19 finger- devices to test for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Any devices used must be MHRA approved with a 100% accuracy rate.
