Emergency Covid Testing for Breakthrough Cases
For those of us who are fully vaccinated, emergency Covid testing may feel like an unnecessary service. Unfortunately, this isn’t always true. While less likely, it’s still possible for fully vaccinated people to catch and transmit Covid. The good news is that these cases, often referred to as “breakthrough cases,” rarely result in severe illness or hospitalization.
However, the risk of transmitting Covid from fully vaccinated people to unvaccinated people remains high. As such, infected persons – even if they are asymptomatic – are typically barred from public and private spaces until they test negative for the virus. Naturally, emergency testing provides a convenient and accurate solution.

Is Covid Really Still a Threat?
Yes. Especially for unvaccinated people. Newer variants of the virus are believed to be more contagious and may severely affect a wider group of people – the initial Covid outbreak resulted in hospitalization mostly for people with preexisting conditions or the elderly.
Vaccination is a proven and effective tool against Covid; however, insufficient vaccine rates have allowed the virus to persist.
