Frequently Asked Questions
We use a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test and a blood antibody test. These tests are provided by EZHealthCheck.
With the PCR test (also called a nasal swab test), a sterile swab is inserted into your nose to take a sample. This is usually not painful, but it can be uncomfortable.
Using a blood draw or a small prick of your finger, this test looks for markers in the blood (called antibodies) that show you are infected or have been infected in the past—even if you don’t have symptoms.
When your results are available, you will get an email letting you know that you can view them on a secure website. It is best to speak with your employer about your company’s guidelines for COVID-19 testing before you get tested. This will prepare you to take the right course of action once you get your results.

If you are having symptoms that you think may be related to COVID-19, you may still get tested at EZHealthCheck. However, if you feel that you are seriously ill, please seek immediate medical care from a healthcare professional.
If you test positive for COVID-19, call your doctor as soon as possible. If you are an airport or airline employee, let your employer know you have tested positive, and ask about your company’s guidelines for workers infected with COVID-19. Everyone is encouraged to visit coronavirus.gov for more information.
If you test negative for COVID-19, you probably were not infected at the time the test was done. However, this does not mean you will not get sick. It is even possible that you were very early in your infection and that you could test positive later. Or you could be exposed to the virus later and then get sick.
