June 2, 2021 (Source) — StageZero’s Richmond, VA laboratory provides same-day test results and documentation required for travel to many international destinations
StageZero Life Sciences, Ltd. (TSX:SZLS) (“StageZero” or the “Company”), a specialist in PCR testing dedicated to the early detection of multiple diseases through whole blood, today announced the opening of a new drive-up COVID-19 testing site at 8751 Park Central Drive in Richmond, VA. While most COVID-19 PCR testing programs can only provide a 1-2 day turnaround for results, StageZero’s fast-track, drive-up testing program is ideal for those who need results the same day.
International air travel is picking up, but many countries – including Canada, Barbados, Bermuda, Jamaica and others – require travelers, regardless of vaccination status, to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure. Most rapid-result testing options currently available are antigen tests, which are not widely accepted for international travel. StageZero Life Sciences provides fast, convenient COVID-19 PCR test results and clear documentation for travel abroad.
“With the pandemic subsiding and summer just around the corner, many Virginians are thinking about traveling abroad to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues or explore new destinations,” said James Howard-Tripp, Chairman and CEO of StageZero Life Sciences. “The StageZero drive-up testing site makes it simple to get same-day COVID-19 PCR test results – considered the gold standard for helping to determine if someone is infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.”
People interested in getting tested can make appointments online. Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Tests are administered by healthcare professionals using a nasopharyngeal swab. Test results are provided by email the same day along with a travel certificate demonstrating proof of the test outcome. Tests are either self-pay or can be billed to insurance.
