Concierge COVID-19 Testing Q & A
What is concierge testing?
Concierge services are services available for you to undergo in your home’s comfort instead of in a facility. With the COVID-19 outbreak, concierge testing is an increasingly popular option for your safety and the safety of your family members.
A member of the Pacific Clinical Labs team travels to your home or office to conduct the test, so you don’t have to follow a set of unclear instructions for a home test. They arrive at your home or office in full personal protective equipment (PPE) for your protection and their own.
There are several types of tests out there, and Pacific Clinical Labs conveniently offers:
During a nasal swab test for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, the team asks you to tilt your head back about 70 degrees before inserting a swab far into the back of your nose to collect a mucus sample.
An oral swab is another way to collect a sample for your PCR test. The team asks you to cough into your mask before swabbing the back of your throat for a saliva sample.
When should I consider concierge testing?
Since concierge testing takes place in your home or office, it may be more convenient for you or your work team. You should consider getting concierge testing in your home or office if you:
- Are concerned about symptoms you have
- Don’t want to put others at risk
- Don’t have the time to travel to Pacific Clinical Labs
- Don’t have transportation to Pacific Clinical Labs
- Want to test several people at the same time who have been in regular contact
- Are at a particularly high risk of contracting COVID-19
If you’re uncertain of whether or not to get concierge testing as opposed to an in-office test, the team can speak to you safely over the phone about the benefits and drawbacks of concierge testing in your case.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and loss of smell. If you or someone close to you has experienced either of these, concierge testing may be the safer option for you and those around you.
What are the benefits of concierge services?
Concierge services are a safer and more convenient option for many individuals, families, and teams who work in the same space. A few of the advantages over in-office testing are:
- Less risk of contraction for you
- Putting others at less risk by avoiding travel to the facility
- Saving time for yourself
- Saving the costs of travel
Of course, slowing the spread of the disease is the highest priority. Concierge testing gives you peace of mind about both spreading the virus to others and contracting it yourself.
