Most of us are looking forward to a safe, relaxing winter before the spring hopefully brings back more of a semblance of “normal” life — and if taking a COVID-19 test is part of that equation for you, here’s an easy and convenient option.
Getting tested for COVID-19 is an important part of preventing the spread of the disease, and Fever has partnered with Physician 360™ on a COVID-19 collection kit to help make testing more accessible, especially around the major holidays of the month. You can provide your sample from the comfort of home, and then mail it to an approved lab that will share results within 1-2 days of receiving it.
Avoid waiting on the hours-long lines in the freezing cold that are plaguing the city — this test doesn’t involve leaving your apartment at all!
The Physician 360™ COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit uses saliva as a diagnostic test to show if you have an active coronavirus infection. It allows you to simply spit into a tube instead of using a more intrusive nasal swab, which many people find more comfortable as well!
It’s an rt-PCR test that looks for the presence or absence of unique genomic markers of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the saliva sample.
Once you purchase the kit, it will be mailed to you at home, with all instructions included. After safely collecting your sample, you will return it via prepaid shipping (labels provided) to a CLIA-certified lab.
You’ll be able to access your results within 24-48 hours of the lab receiving your sample, on an easy-to-understand report on Physician 360™’s secure online platform.
To safeguard the health of yourself and others, and to help prevent the spread of COVID19, Fever recommends that you monitor publicly available information regarding COVID19, and that you always follow federal, state and local health organization guidance and government mandates.
