What are Mobile and Corporate COVID Testing Options?
As some states begin to open up businesses, employers have to navigate how to keep their employees safe in a working environment. Mobile and corporate company COVID testing will become increasingly important as people begin to venture back into the office in the future.
Mobile and Corporate COVID Testing: The Facts
If you believe that you have been exposed to COVID-19, or begin to show symptoms of the virus (such as a fever or cough), you should receive a COVID-19 test. Being tested is the only way to know for sure if you have contracted the COVID-19 virus. After being tested for COVID-19, you should isolate yourself until you receive the result so as to not infect others. There are two types of COVID-19 tests at present: a viral test (to test for a current infection), and an antibody test (to test for a past infection). It is recommended that you are tested about three days after assumed exposure, and again after 10 days to see if the virus has left your system.
Mobile and Corporate COVID Testing
As hospitals are pressing their capacity limits across the country, mobile testing sites have been a vital resource to scale testing and fight against the spread of the COVID-19 virus, without putting unneeded pressure inside the hospitals. Large, outdoor spaces such as parking lots have been a great location to build mobile testing units to decrease the strain put on hospitals. Lifeline Health is developing mobile and drive through testing sites to help support our communities and healthcare systems. For example, in our Norco testing location, we offer same day results and have been able to administer over 40,000 tests per month. You can learn more about our mobilized COVID testing and how it can be used for businesses/corporations at our website.

When implementing mobile and corporate COVID testing requirements into a workplace, the CDC advises that, “Employees undergoing testing should receive clear information on:
The manufacturer and name of the test, the type of test, the purpose of the test, the reliability of the test, any limitations associated with the test, who will pay for the test, and how the test will be performed, and how to understand what the results mean, actions associated with negative or positive results, who will receive the results, how the results may be used, and any consequences for declining to be tested”.
These are all vital factors to think about when implementing mobile COVID testing for corporate settings. For more information on CDC recommendations for workplaces, visit their website.
