COVID-19 Return-to-Work Program

As stay-at-home orders relax and businesses reopen, experts advise that widespread testing is crucial to ensure the safety of our communities. Total Access Urgent Care (TAUC) is committed to helping the St. Louis region responsibly reopen by offering COVID-19 virus and antibody testing. Testing employees is an important first step to help your business return-to-work sooner and more safely.

Restarting Your Business and Maintaining a Healthy Workplace

We help:

  1. Manage test results (including those that are positive).

  2. Navigate complicated and rapidly-evolving CDC return-to-work guidelines.

  3. Mitigate the risk of spreading the virus in your workplace.

Employer Testing Solutions

To reduce the risk of a recurring outbreak of COVID-19 infections as people return to work, TAUC is offering a comprehensive COVID-19 evaluation. The testing options include:

  1. COVID-19 Virus Testing: This test diagnoses people who are currently infected with COVID-19. We are testing patients with symptoms, as well as those who are concerned they have been exposed. COVID-19 test results are typically available in 5-7 days.

  2. COVID-19 Antibody Testing: This test detects if you have been previously infected with COVID-19. Your body produces antibodies in response to an infectious agent such as a virus to provide protection against the infection in the future. These test results are typically available in 4 days.

  3. Symptom Evaluation: TAUC has extensive expertise and diagnostic technology to evaluate and treat all of your symptoms, including those related to possible COVID-19 infection.

How Does It Work?

  1. No Copays for Employees with Insurance: This is the simplest solution for the employee and employer. We are working closely with our health insurance partners who are covering COVID-19 related medical expenses, including COVID-19 virus and antibody testing.

  2. Employer Responsibility: If your employee has health insurance, consider option #1. By utilizing the employee’s health insurance plan, there is no direct expense for the employer or the employee.
