Adults and children over 2 years of age are asked to wear face coverings. Children under 2 years of age and people with medical conditions or disabilities who may be adversely affected by a face covering do not need to wear one.
SafetyZone follows CDC general cleaning guidance, which includes frequently cleaning all commonly touched surfaces, using disposable wipes to disinfect these surfaces, and using personal protective equipment while cleaning, including wearing nitrile gloves and safety goggles/glasses when using bleach/water solutions.
A deep cleaning will be performed, which consists of wiping down all horizontal and high-contact touch points using Shockwave disinfectant cleaner and SteraMist spray.
In line with CDC and State Department guidance for infection control and prevention, and in the interest of keeping our providers, store colleagues and patients safe during this time, SafetyZone has developed a temporary COVID-19 waiting room protocol.
Patients are required to wait in their personal vehicles or outside the testing location. When it is time for the patient's scheduled visit, the SafetyZone provider will call or text the patient on the number they provided when they set up the appointment.
The patient will be asked a series of questions to determine their risk for COVID-19. If symptoms or exposure history suggest they may be at risk, and they receive a positive test result, we will share information about how to find care.
If one of our providers does see a patient who meets the criteria for COVID-19 risk, we take the appropriate precautions to protect our providers, other patients and customers. During the exam the provider will wear protective gear (e.g., appropriate masks, gloves, gown and goggles) and will provide the patient with a mask.
After the visit, the provider will disinfect the clinic exam room following CDC care precautions for communicable infections, which includes the thorough disinfection of all clinic surfaces (including the sign-in kiosk). The provider may also close the disinfected clinic for a two-hour period if needed and move to another room in the clinic to continue patient care.
When you are tested by SafetyZone you will receive free access to the SafetyZone mobile app where you can create a secure and private SafetyZone Identity Vault that allows you as an individual to control the receipt and distribution of your test results.
Your doctor is in the best position to advise if testing is needed based on your symptoms. However, if a service provider (Airline, Airport, Cruise Line, Stadium, School, Business, House of Worship) require proof of a negative COVID-19 test, you can individually opt-in for a SafetyZone Rapid Test and receive a secure & private notification of your test results within 30 minutes of test administration.
SafetyZone’s Rapid Test cost between $30 and $50. We accept insurance at all SafetyZone test sites. However, under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act approved by Congress, patients should not have any out-of-pocket costs with their insurance. Uninsured patients will be covered under a program funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Yes, first responders and care workers are able to receive SafetyZone Rapid Tests at no cost if they believe they have been exposed through their work, if they have no symptoms but have a physician's referral, or if they are symptomatic.
Patients are required to be masked and socially distanced throughout the process. When a patient arrives at the SafetyZone Testing Site, they will see clear signage directing them through the testing process.
Once the patient arrives, a SafetyZone Testing team member will process the patient into the SafetyZone system and provide them with a test kit and instructions on how to properly perform a self-swab. The patient will also receive a packet of information on next steps to follow when the test results are available to them in 30 minutes. The SafetyZone Testing team member will observe the self-swab process to ensure it is done properly.
Once the patient has completed the self-swab, the patient will deposit the sample in a specifically designated and secure container.
Patient samples are then be tested on-site by FDA/EUA approved DetectaChem MobileDetectBio BCC19 test SafetyZone’s lab is responsible for processing and delivering the results, which we then communicate to patients and are viewable through the SafetyZone app within 30 minutes of test administration.
All test specimens are processed on-site. Results are available 30 minutes from test administration. Results are sent to the patient securely through the SafetyZone app. The patient will receive a link through email to sign up to view results through the SafetyZone app.
The process will take approximately 30 minutes from the collection of the swab to the delivery of the results.
