Discovery Health MD Leads COVID-19 Assessments and Procedures.

Our connections in the Maritime Industry told us early that something was brewing in China.

Since the beginning of this pandemic our team has investigated, collaborated with Washington State and Alaska, and worked with research facilities to get to the bottom of SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19.

Now, in collaboration with the University of Washington, Discovery Health MD has front-line testing and risk reduction strategies for companies like yours.

The RT-PCR test is highly specific, which means false positives are unlikely.


The Abbott ARCHITECT IgG immunoassay is reported to be 99.6% specific with a detection of 1 false positive in 1020 specimens in UW internal testing. A false positive serology in unlikely, but not impossible.

If the RT-PCR nasal swab is positive, you will be asked to isolate (meaning stay indoors, at least 6 feet away from others, with no sharing of bathroom or kitchen facilities) for at least 10 days. Public health will be notified and you would be advised to follow up with your personal doctor. You will NOT receive a travel letter, and neither you or your close contacts should travel.

If the IgG serology (antibody) test is positive, you will be asked to isolate for at least 1 week at home and follow up with your doctor and public health for further recommendations.

Test-to-Fly:

First you will need to visit our bookings page, which can be found here: Test-to-Fly Appointments

Once the testing appointments are scheduled, you will receive an email with a link to fill out the online consent and questionnaire. You will be asked if you have any current symptoms or recent exposure to someone with possible COVID-19. If you have symptoms, you should not test and should seek medical care. You will be asked to provide demographic information and answer some questions including your travel history in the past 60 days. This information will help with contact tracing efforts  if you or your party have a positive result.

It is very important your name matches your identification exactly.

On the testing day, your ID will be verified and our medical staff will assist you with obtaining the nasal swab specimen. These will be sent to one of our partner laboratories for processing.

Test-to-Work:

Our testing process is highly adaptable to the needs of our commercial and remote clients. Please visit our Test-to-work page to learn more about how we can best serve your organization.

A positive RT-PCR nasal swab means the virus was detected. It does not tell us if you are infectious or not. A negative test means the virus was not detected on the nasal sample. You could still be infectious with a negative result.

A positive IgG serology (antibody) test means an antibody was detected. Antibodies may appear days to weeks after an infection, but may not appear for 3 weeks or may never appear. A positive antibody test is difficult to interpret with our current understanding of the disease. It may represent recent infection, remote infection, or possibly a false positive. We cannot say anything about immunity at this time. A positive IgG does not mean you are immune. Antibody tests should not be used as the sole test to determine if someone has the disease.
