COVID-19 In The Workplace
Your workplace is essential to the economy. Employers are responsible for the general well-being of their employees which includes workplace exposure to COVID-19 and other infections in the workplace. Protect your employees and your business by implementing a COVID-19 plan. Your plan should include workplace entry, workplace prevention and workplace reentry.
Individual employee screenings via telemedicine
An employee who becomes ill or has an exposure to infectious disease can get an immediate screening and evaluation via telemedicine.
Avoid potential outbreaks by rapid screening employees within the workplace. Antigen and antibody tests are available and can be resulted within 15 minutes. Tests will be conducted so as to not disturb the workday.
Workforce screenings can be conducted every 2 to 4 weeks. Routine screens are shown to decrease the amount of infectious disease spread. Routine screening also help identify asymptomatic persons who may be spreading disease. Finally, early detection of COVID-19 leads to early treatment and better recovery results.
Before returning to work, a person diagnosed with COVID-19 should be screened and tested for antibodies and the presence of SARS-Cov2 virus. Patients who are improving in health can still carry the active virus. That active virus can be spread to other employees. A simple 15 minute test can detect whether or not a patient is still sharing an active virus.
