Unfortunately, as you are aware, hospitalizations for RSV and Flu are ramping up among children and the elderly alongside Covid-19, with a surge of cases seen weeks earlier in summer and fall than the normal winter season according to the Wall Street Journal.
At My Care Labs, we’re gearing up for RSV, or Respiratory Syncytial Virus. With symptoms similar to the cold or flu, it’s an ortho-pneumo-virus causing issues as serious as bronchiolitis and pneumonia in people from infancy to old age. We expect hospitalizations to be up this winter for both Influenza A/B and RSV, along with Covid-19. Masks off and more congregating leads to extra community spread.
My Care Labs is launching a 4-panel combo test this month for RSV, all Covid-19 variants, and Influenza A and B. One easy test, four quick results. Contact us today for help setting up your bulk test kit orders or in-person testing program for all four diseases.
- Zero cost to students, teachers, staff, and vendors, with any insurance plan
- Negotiated low rate for uninsured individuals
- 24-hour PCR results for early detection
- Self-testing and in-person testing options
- One-time simple registration
We offer free bulk test kits and $0 testing services – both with 24-hour results – to school districts of all sizes. Our laboratory is prepared to test school districts of any size.
