I’d Like to Get My Employees Tested for COVID-19. Can I?
We would be happy to assist you in organizing testing for your employees. Please contact us at wecare@xpwell.com 

When Can My Employees Come Back to Work?
We follow the CDC’s guidance for return to work recommendations. You can find more information about that here.

Difference Between Rapid/PCR Testing & Antibody Testing
Rapid and/or PCR testing will determine if a patient currently has the virus. The antibody test will determine if a patient has the presence of IgG antibodies, which may suggest that the patient has had the virus in the past.

How is the Test Performed?
PCR specimens are collected using a nasopharyngeal swab. Sofia rapid testing is done using a nasal swab, similar to how one would be tested for the flu.

Which Test Will I Receive?
The test you receive will be based upon your responses to our questionnaire. Our medical practitioners will be able to recommend the best method of testing for you based on your symptoms and the reason for testing.

How Can I Get My Employees Back to Work Safely & Responsibly?
Xpress Wellness Urgent Care is approved for many employer services and partners with other outside laboratories for additional analysis when appropriate.

How Much Does This Cost?

My Employee Needs a Negative COVID-19 Test to Return to Work
Xpress Wellness Urgent Care follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for COVID-19 testing. If an individual has previously tested positive, the CDC does not recommend a follow-up negative COVID-19 test for returning to work. 

For persons who never develop symptoms, isolation and other precautions can be discontinued 10 days after the date of their first positive test.

For persons who did develop symptoms, isolation and other precautions can be discontinued when 10 days have passed from the onset of symptoms and:

  • at least 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • you have had an improvement in symptoms Xpress Wellness will provide a consultation to evaluate for resolution of symptoms to return to work but does not recommend a COVID-19 test.
