Akos makes it easy for employers to get
their employees tested for COVID-19
As businesses begin to reopen, many employers are asking their employees to get tested prior to returning to work. To support this effort, Akos is conducting onsite testing for businesses that would like to test their employees. We'll come to your place of business and conduct testing quickly and efficiently.
No preparation is required on the part of the employees. Just show up!
Employees do not need to pre-register. Akos will register, screen and test employees onsite.
An Akos provider will screen the employee via a virtual visit.
An Akos medical professional will perform the COVID-19 nasal swab test.
A minimum of 50 people is required for onsite testing. If desired, employers may invite dependents, family, and friends to the onsite testing event.
Phoenix Metro Area
We are offering this service to employers in the Phoenix metroplex and surrounding communities.
Employees will be screened by an Akos provider via a virtual visit at the time of testing.
Employees will access their lab results by enrolling on the Sonora Quest portal at SonoraQuest.com/account. In the event of a positive test result, an Akos provider will contact the employee directly to discuss a care plan and quarantine.
An Akos medical professional will administer a nasal swab test. This is done by inserting a swab into the nostril approximately 1 inch into the nasal passage. The swab is rotated, removed gently and stored. The collected specimen is submitted to Sonora Quest for processing.
We are committed to the highest safety standards and follow CDC guidelines to protect our staff and your employees.
Individual test results will be disclosed to the employee and employer.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) updated its guidance on April 23 on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and coronavirus, explaining that employers may screen employees for COVID-19. Any mandatory medical test must be job-related and consistent with business necessity, the EEOC explained. Applying this standard to the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, employers may take steps to determine if employees entering the workplace have COVID-19 because an individual with the virus will pose a direct threat to the health of others.
