COVID-19 PCR Testing (Nasal Swab)
PCR testing is for individuals who may have an active COVID-19 infection. It can be performed at work or home for asymptomatic employees or students, with results available on average in 2-4 days.
On-site: Labcorp staff are on site to assist with sample collection, preparation, and shipment.
At-home: Our At-home COVID-19 Test Collection Kit can be sent directly to employees at their home and is a self-administered nasal swab.
Off-site: Observed self-collection for COVID-19 PCR testing is available at select locations nationwide for employee/individuals who are symptom free and have not been exposed to COVID-19.
COVID-19 Antigen Point-of-Care Testing (Nasal Swab)
Antigen testing is for individuals who may have an active COVID-19 infection. It can be performed at work for asymptomatic employees or students, with results available in 15-20 minutes.
COVID-19 IgG Antibody Testing (Blood/Serology)
Antibody testing is for individuals who think they may have previously had COVID-19 and do not currently have symptoms. It can check for antibodies that may have developed after exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. Results are available on average in 2-4 days.
On-site: This test is available as a dried blood spot finger stick test or as a blood draw, both of which can be performed conveniently at your facility.
Off-site: This blood draw test is performed by a phlebotomist at a Labcorp patient service center or Labcorp at Walgreens location, all of which are conveniently located across the U.S.
Employees with active COVID-19 symptoms should contact their doctor or healthcare provider. Antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude infection.
Labcorp’s workforce strategy solutions assists organizations in identifying employees with elevated temperatures and other possible COVID-19 symptoms who are reporting to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Both services consist of a simple, two-step process managed by on-site trained staff:
- Completion of a questionnaire to screen for symptoms that may be consistent with COVID-19
- Performance of a no-contact temperature check
