We are dedicated to addressing your testing needs, which are unique to you. The following are jumping-off points for the customized plan we will help you create and implement.
There are three key components to testing:
Diagnostic Testing is used to verify infection after suspected exposure to the virus, or the appearance of symptoms.
Screening Testing is intended as a precautionary step. It is particularly useful for the general population, not just those who have been exposed to the virus.
For example, it can be provided at a workplace to test employees, whose results will determine the extent of appropriate precautions.
Surveillance Testing is used to identify and monitor an outbreak of a disease. Its primary goal is to collect the data necessary to determine appropriate preventative measures. For example, community testing allows researchers gauge the effectiveness of public efforts, like social distancing.
