COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing

Konekt Workcare can help you keep your team and your workplace safe with the COVID-19 rapid testing service which gives a result within just 20 minutes.

The rapid antigen test allows businesses to adhere to local COVID-19 regulations and avoid or prevent any potential outbreak from shutting down a workplace by identifying possible infections.

Administered by our allied health professionals, each test meets strict safety protocols including but not limited to face masks, social distancing and good hygiene practice as outlined by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) so you can be sure your team is kept safe and supported through the procedure.

The COVID-19 rapid antigen test will not be supplied for the purpose of self-testing.

About the test

Rapid antigen testing involves performing a nasal swab using a small cotton bud that is then placed into a chemical solution.

The results will be displayed within 15 to 20 minutes, allowing your employees to return to work quicker, ultimately ensuring peace of mind and business continuity.

Tests cannot be supplied for self-testing.

 

Why choose Konekt Workcare?

To maintain workplace health and safety and to ensure the accuracy of the result, trained health professionals must administer or supervise the tests.

Our experienced allied health professionals are qualified to carry out the tests face to face or, if required, we can help your employees administer the test correctly via telehealth services.

What test kits are used?

Test kits are only available by approved suppliers and a list is available via the TGA website.

If required, we can provide your business with a TGA approved supplier and once your organisation has approved test kits, we can administer the rapid testing service.

What happens if an infection is detected?

Before tests are carried out, our allied health professionals will help ensure testing sites and protocols are set up to ensure the safety of your employees and prevent infection.

If a test reveals an employee is positive for COVID-19 or symptomatic persons require immediate confirmatory testing with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. We can guide you and your employee with the necessary steps to maintain their safety and the health of your team.

This will include additional testing to confirm any infection and immediately notifying state and territory health authorities so that contact tracing and processes to manage the threat of an outbreak can begin.
