Sativa Wellness Launches COVID Testing Clinic in Store
We are pleased to announce that as part of Sativa Wellness’s commitment to safety and wellness in our communities, we are launching a private COVID testing clinic inside our Goodbody Wellness store in Bath on 19th November.
The clinic will be providing PCR testing for travel and work, antigen testing (results in 15 minutes) as well as antibody testing for those who want to find out if they have had COVID 19 and to see if they have developed antibodies.
Customers book an appointment online, and will attend in-store to self-administer the test guided by a trained medical professional. The company is already seeing strong demand in pre-bookings for this service.
Sativa Wellness Group provides numerous products to help customers during these challenging times, including our popular Goodbody Wellness CBD with vitamin D, and a complete range of hand sanitiser products designed for use in restaurants, businesses and for personal use, available in-store or online at https://www.goodbodystore.com.
The UK Government is evaluating a ‘Test to Release’ scheme which is expected to reduce the quarantine period after travelling abroad, by taking a test five or seven days after returning to the UK. However, negative tests are already a requirement when travelling to a number of countries from the UK. Appointments should be made in line with the Government guidelines on when your test is required for travel.
The private clinic is designed for people who aren’t presenting symptoms but who need a negative test for travel, work or peace of mind when visiting vulnerable relatives. Anyone with symptoms should instead book an NHS test and follow the Government isolation procedures.
The PCR lab test is a swab sent for analysis at an accredited laboratory to test for the presence of COVID-19. A certificate delivered direct via email and SMS is provided to permit travelling and pass immigration. The test is 98% sensitive if the virus is found on the swab and has a 48-72-hour turnaround. The test cost £155.
A rapid antigen test is also available, which checks whether you are carrying the COVID-19 virus and could be infectious to others. Sensitivity is 92.5% and Specificity is 99.8%. Results are available in 15 minutes and the test costs £75.
Finally, an IgG and IgM rapid antibody test costing £55 is available which tests to see if you have already had COVID-19 and have developed antibodies. The test has an accuracy of 98.3and results are available in just 15 minutes.
According to George Thomas, Managing Director of Goodbody Botanicals, “Our expertise in good health and wellbeing made it an obvious transition to be able to offer COVID testing in our store. The same attention to detail and care has been taken to ensure we can offer the best testing in a safe, calm environment. We hope this service will give people the peace of mind, and proof, required to return to travel, work and visiting friends and family when this is possible”.
