As the world begins to emerge from the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations are starting to ask the question, “How does our workforce move forward?” Businesses that shifted to a fully remote working system during the pandemic are navigating how to safely bring workers back to the office. Many are looking to invite customers and clients back safely as well. However, while the overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic may be decreasing, the risk of exposure and infection remains. Many organizations are trying to get ahead of any potential exposure events by testing every employee for coronavirus once they return to work. This is when the need for on-site testing comes up by inviting companies just like ours. At Premier Choice Testing, we use PCR testing for the most accurate results and can have your test results returned within 24-48 hours in any U.S. State.

Here are just a few benefits of investing in on-site testing: 

1. Non-invasive
When you do not have to worry about buying more tests every week or having someone look for tests constantly, you save a lot of time and money. Having specifically trained and certified lab technicians work on your sample overnight makes it easy for you to test your employees regularly over time.

2. Reliable
The nose swab PCR test for COVID-19 is an accurate and reliable test for diagnosing COVID-19. A positive test means you likely have COVID-19. A negative test means you probably did not have COVID-19 at the time of the test. The test detects the presence of a virus if you have the virus at the time of the test. The test could also detect fragments of the virus even after you are no longer infected.

3. Lower costs for companies and employees
The cost of COVID-19 exposure is high, with most estimates putting the average cost per employee at thousands of dollars in lost revenue and workforce time. This includes the price of lost time from work and additionally, directly costs the patient nothing as it is billed through the Insurance and the Cares Act.
