SAN FRANCISCO, April 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has partnered with the San Francisco Giants to offer COVID-19 testing 9th April. The special testing procedure offered by Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care follows a public health ordinance issued by the San Francisco Health Commissioner, which allows a participation capacity of up to 22 percent for fans who have a negative test result or proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
Daryn Kumar, MBA, FACHE, President and CEO of Dignity Health’s Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco, said, “As a longtime health care provider for the Giants, we’re excited to be doing our part in reopening Oracle Park for fans to witness the home opener’s first pitch. With rapid COVID-19 molecular tests available from our GoHealth Urgent Care At centers across the Bay Area, we can offer convenient options and accurate results so Giants fans can feel safe and secure at every home game this season. “
After purchasing their tickets, Giants fans will receive a link with which they can arrange a short virtual visit to a Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care provider. As soon as the virtual evaluation is complete, book an appointment for a quick COVID-19 test at a convenient, nearby center. For fans who have not been vaccinated, the results will be published on a confidential patient portal. All ticket holders without proof of a full vaccination (defined as at least two weeks after the second vaccination) must receive a negative COVID-19 result within 72 hours of game day and be ready to display printed or mobile test results upon entering Oracle Park.
Todd Latz, GoHealth Urgent Care CEO, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Giants. This offering is a natural extension of the broader support that Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has provided to the Bay Area throughout the pandemic – from the start of the COVID-19 rapid tests over a year ago and COVID-19 tests before the flight San Francisco International Airport, to help us get back to work, including on-site testing and virtual care options for local employers, and now Bay Area fans to get back to the things they love. “
