COVID TESTING

Vital Plus Pharmacy is currently offering COVID-19 testing.

 

Rapid Test - This test will detect if you are actively infected with the COVID-19 virus & is administered via a nasal swab

What Precautions Do I Take Based On My Results?

 

Rapid Test Negative:

- Asymptomatic

 

Continue to exercise universal precautions such as social distancing, quarantining, frequent hand washing, wearing of a mask or face cloth in public, and other CDC guideline recommendations.


- Symptomatic

 

A confirmatory PCR test will be sent to an outside lab to ensure result accuracy. You should quarantine at home until your PCR result is available.

 

Rapid Test Positive:

- Asymptomatic

 

You are recommended to isolate for 10 days from the day of the test. You may end your isolation period after 10 days assuming you either remain symptom free or any symptoms you develop are significantly improved AND you have not had a fever for 24 hours (without using fever reducing medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen).


- Symptomatic

 

You are recommended to self quarantine for 10 days from onset of symptoms. After 10 days, you may return to work provided your respirator symptoms (ie. cough, runny nose) are improving AND you are fever-free for 24 hours (without using fever reducing medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen).
