If your business has employees with symptoms of Covid-19, they will need to stay at home and you are likely to require them to have a PCR swab test to determine whether they have the SARS-COV-2 virus. The test needs to be taken in the first 5 days of having symptoms.
By now we should all be well aware that the key symptoms are:
- A high temperature
- A new continuous cough
- A loss or change to sense of smell or taste
It is well publicised that free tests are available through the NHS for people with symptoms, however, from time to time there are delays in getting a test and delays in receiving the results through the NHS service.
When you require a faster turnaround, Gipping OH can help you because our Laboratory Partner provides a timely and reliable service.
During the last 6 months, our experience has been that results are available in 7 to 18 hours from receipt of samples at the lab. For samples received first thing in the morning we usually receive the results by 4:30 pm that same day.
We can despatch tests to your employees’ homes by first class post, special delivery or motorcycle courier.
The test kits contain a swab, instructions for taking the sample, lab form and bag to post back to the lab (prepaid 24-hour delivery).
