Dr. George Willeford, III, Medical Director:
“What we're trying to do to help employers is to provide rapid effective testing so that employees can safely get back to the workplace. And if an employee he becomes ill, we can provide information to try and clarify the source of that illness because everybody that gets sick doesn't necessarily have COVID”.
“Point of Care Health Services makes testing and vaccinations convenient across America by providing a mobile unit that will come onsite to facilities, churches, universities, institutions, where we can safely administer rapid test with rapid results as well as vaccines.”

Antigen tests are immunoassays that detect the presence of a specific viral antigen, which implies current viral infection. Antigen tests are currently authorized to be performed on nasophar yngeal or nasal swab specimens placed directly into the assay's extraction buffer or reagent. Rapid antigen tests perform best when the person is tested in the early stages of infection with SARS-CoV-2 when viral load is generally highest. They also may be informative in diagnostic testing situations in which the person has a known exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19.
PCR (Results in 24-48 hours)
Molecular/PCR tests are also known as Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAAT), and are based on detection of the virus's genetic material in a sample from the patient's nose. These types of tests are described as typically highly accurate. Molecular testing uses isothermal technology, proprietary enzymes and constant temperature control to achieve the fastest available RNA amplification. This proven molecular system greatly reduces the time for results, allowing healthcare providers to make patient care decisions sooner. Some hospitals use it to test patients before surgery.

In general, a positive antibody test is presumed to mean a person has been infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, at some point in the past. It does not mean they are currently infected. Antibody test results should NOT be used to diagnose someone with an active infection. Antibodies start developing within 1 to 3 weeks after infection. We currently don't have enough information yet to say whether someone will definitely be immune and protected from reinfection if they have antibodies to the virus.
