Bode-CARES:  Testing for COVID-19

Bode-CARESTM  COVID-19 testing is a molecular diagnostic test using real-time reverse transcription (RT) – PCR for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The test will indicate whether SARS-CoV-2 virus is detected in a specimen, is not detected, or is inconclusive for detection. Bode processes more than 150,000 samples annually using the RT-PCR method.

The Bode-CARES program provides fast testing in support of our clients to ensure safer environments for the organizations and communities we serve. Timely results are integral in preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the Bode-CARES program delivers proven results in 24-48 hours from receipt of the specimen.

Through Bode’s COVID-19 testing, agencies will quickly know if an exposure, or potential exposure, to coronavirus has resulted in the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Bode’s fast and accurate results will aid in deterring the spread of the virus throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Bode-CARES testing results are delivered via a secured, HIPAA compliant patient portal.

Bode is certified to perform COVID testing with results reported 24-48 hours of receipt of samples.

Bode-CARES: Implementing a Testing Plan

Bode-CARES for First responders and Critical Infrastructure Employees

Essential employees and first responders, including law enforcement, fire services, and emergency medical services may have an increased risk of infection leading to COVID-19 because of an increased risk of exposure to the virus.

This includes prolonged exposure in communities where the virus is present and the increased number of individuals that these employees are exposed to.

Bode offers priority testing for essential employees and first responders through the Bode-CARES program.

Bode-CARES for Assisted Living Facilities

CDC has recommendations for when nursing homes should test all residents and healthcare personnel (HCP) in nursing homes. Facility-wide testing involves testing all residents for detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and to use that information to prevent exposure of nursing home residents.

Recommendations include for serial testing after the initial facility-wide testing to identify new transmission events early.

Bode-CARES for Employers and Universities

Many organizations are implementing COVID-19 testing programs to keep employees, staff and students safe by quickly identifying the potential risk of COVID-19 exposure to their staff. Through return-to-work and safer-at-work programs, regular and systematic testing of individuals enables agencies to safely maintain operations.

Following each screening, and in accordance with the organization's policies and procedures, individuals will be cleared for work or redirected to the client’s human resources team or other designated client staff for further action,
