COVID – 19 Evaluation

The ability to accurately identify whether individuals are at risk for, infected with, or have an immune response to SARS-CoV-2 is essential to address the COVID-19 pandemic from both a personal and a public health perspective. Reliable testing is critical for:

  • Determining the state of an individual’s immune response to exposure.
  • Assessing whether an individual is contagious and needs to be quarantined.
  • Deciding if an individual is immune and can return to society without undue risk.
  • Facilitating contact tracing to reduce viral spread.
  • Determining the prevalence and natural history of this novel disease.

If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19 or think you have had the disease in the past Dr. Larson will evaluate your history and order bloodwork to assess your COVID-19 status.

Tests for Sars-CoV-2/COVID-19 and Uses

This can be done in the safety of your own home.  The history is gathered by Dr. Larson over a HIPAA compliant video connection.  The test appropriate for your history is ordered and the collection kit mailed to you.  You collect the sample at home and return it by mail.  

A follow up appointment is scheduled when your test result comes back.  If you have an active COVID-19 infection you will be contacted immediately on receipt of the results.
