COVID-19 testing and UAs:
*If you have been in the near proximity of someone positive for COVID-19, we encourage you to obtain lab testing for the virus as soon as possible. However, simply telling your monitor you have been exposed will not excuse you from a requested UA. If you believe you have been exposed to the virus, but not been tested at a lab/clinic/pharmacy, take all feasible precautions to avoid a potential spread of COVID as you submit to the UA request.
*Please note; "at home" test results will not be accepted as valid documentation. You will need a confirmed lab-run test with your name and date of testing (indicating either you are awaiting pending results, or have tested positive) for you to be excused from a UA request.
*If you have tested positive for COVID via a lab/clinic/pharmacy setting, or if you are currently awaiting COVID testing results from a recent testing, please email documentation (paperwork you received from the testing site) to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then need to follow-up your email with a call to your monitor, Jevon Sills, at 913-390-0100, for confirmation as to whether or not you are excused from a requested drug/alcohol UA.
