“LumiQuick is pleased to donate over one million Boson™ Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Tests to AHMC Seton Medical Center, San Francisco Chinese Hospital, and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. These are community partners who are best equipped to get the test kits in the hands of people who need them.” Said Charles Yu, the CEO of LumiQuick. “With the rising of COVID-19 cases nationwide and the continuous mutation of the virus, the regular testing is playing an important role to help people to protect themselves and prevent the spreading of this contagious disease. Coming of the new school year, we can foresee the increased chances of COVID-19 infection. We hope that our donation will help the school and community to make the tests more available for people in need. To continue to recover the economics from the pandemic, we need a healthier community. We are proud that LumiQuick can make this contribution and will continue to support our community.”
“AHMC Seton Medical Center is committed to increasing the overall health of the community,” said Sarkis Vartanian, AHMC Seton Medical Center Administrator. “Through the generosity of LumiQuick, our community will be able to access test kits for early detection and prevention. While transmission remains high, public health currently recommends that wearing a high-quality mask in indoor settings, increasing ventilation and testing if symptomatic continues. The LumiQuick donation provides additional access to testing kits for our patients, their families and the communities we serve in northern San Mateo County. We are appreciative of this donation from LumiQuick to Seton Medical Center.”
