Pre-Op Testing

DAY 10 PRE-OPERATIVE PCR TEST:  Patients requiring the Day 10 pre-operative swab should see their primary care provider for a PCR test. In the event a Day 10 pre-operative swab is not able to be scheduled, due to clinic closure or other reason, a swab collected up to and including Day 15 pre-op will be accepted;


DAY 10 PRE-OPERATIVE Rapid Antigen TEST: If the patient is unable to access a Day 10 pre-operative PCR test through a primary care provider, patients should conduct a self-administered Rapid Antigen Test at home on Day 10 before surgery. If the result is positive, the patients should inform their surgeon’s office.

As well, beginning April 19,  the day of your surgery a pre-operative swab rapid test will be given at a designated area within the surgical site (the 24 hour pre-op test is no longer required).
