Detect COVID-19 up to 5 days before symptoms appear
Infection Surveillance and Early Warning for Long-Term Care Communities
Results within 24 hours, guaranteed.
Most people infected with COVID-19 do not develop symptoms within the first 2 weeks of infection and unknowingly spread the virus. Asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic staff members are the main vector of COVID-19 infection in long-term care facilities.
Enviral tech enables COVID-19 infection control in long-term care facilities and nursing homes by letting Executive Directors and Facility Managers know as soon as the virus has been introduced into their facilities.
Our CDC- and FDA-approved testing methods detect and quantify the COVID-19 virus SARS-CoV-2 on high-touch, high-traffic surfaces and in air samples.
We want to do the right thing. That is why we use swabs that are made specifically for environmental use, not for human testing. This means that we do not displace or delay any human testing. In addition, we are improving access to human testing by connecting an Oregon testing facility with Long Term Care Communities across the country.
We led the largest study focusing on COVID-19 outbreak prevention in Long-Term Care communities. 52 communities across 6 states enrolled to test the efficiency of surface testing for early outbreak warning. Weekly testing select high-traffic and high-touch areas in facilities tells you whether community members are infected and shedding the virus, even if they are not yet showing symptoms.
Why test the air and surfaces for COVID-19?
As the spread of COVID-19 has continued throughout the world, scientists, healthcare professionals, and governments have been using environmental sampling to better understand how the virus is transmitted, potential infectivity modes and monitoring of hygiene/cleaning protocols. We are here to help you harness the same science to make sure that your facilities are ready to welcome people.

How to start COVID-19 Sampling and Testing
Enviral Tech enables you to test and detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus in your environment. The test is simple and can be carried out by an employee or facility manager in each one of your locations. All they have to do is swab the surfaces that they want to test (we suggest testing high traffic zones such as bathrooms, break rooms, elevators etc…), place each swab in the provided tube and send it to our lab with the pre-paid, pre-labeled packaging.
1. Swab your surfaces
2. Ship your samples
3. Get your test result and certificate
When should you test surfaces for COVID-19?
This test should be performed:
- To validate cleaning and disinfecting efforts in response to known cases of COVID-19
- Prior to employees or students returning to the facility, as a first step to recalling the workforce on-site upon business reopening.
- As a precautionary measure to provide assurance to you employees that frequently-touched surfaces are safe
- As a way to reinforce safe behaviors in the workplace.
- You will have access to your results within 24 hours of the samples' arrival to our lab
- The laboratory testing your samples utilizes CDC- and FDA-approved methods
What if your samples are COVID-19-positive?
Beyond environmental testing, Enviral Tech can provide consultative support to help you mitigate potential outbreak after a positive result (if SARS-CoV-2 genetic material is detected on one or multiple of your surfaces).
