What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a new strain of virus that causes diseases mainly affecting the lungs. When an infected person sneezes or coughs, the air droplets that exit their body can spread the virus to other people. The virus enters the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth. Symptoms of COVID include: fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
What is PCR Testing?
The Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction, or RT-PCR, test is a reliable testing method to check if you are infected with the Coronavirus. When COVID-19 particles enter the body, they invade the host cells and start to replicate their viral RNA molecules. The RT-PCR test detects the presence of Coronavirus RNA in human cells, even if there are no antibodies produced yet or the person has not shown any symptoms yet. We are using a private CLIA certified lab that has an EUA from the FDA and is recognized by the health department and the city of Los Angeles.
