While there are many variables that play into protecting viral infections from spreading, COVID-19 testing for employees may help to reduce the potential for an outbreak at your workplace. Some employees are at higher risk than others, based on the nature of their work, for contracting COVID-19. If trying to decide if you should have your employees tested for this highly contagious virus, ask yourself the following questions:
Do my employees travel frequently?
Travel can make it more difficult for individuals to protect themselves from exposure to COVID-19. Close quarters for travel with others, as well as being away from handwashing stations can make it difficult to prevent contracting this illness. If you have employees that are regularly traveling consider having regular testing performed on your employees.
Are any of your employees experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath?
These symptoms are the most common symptoms associated with COVID-19. If even one employee begins showing these symptoms, you may be dealing with an outbreak. COVID-19 symptoms can take up to 2 weeks to show up, and unfortunately, not all patients will display symptoms even when they are contagious.
Have your employees been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19?
If someone on your staff has been in close contact with an individual that has been confirmed as having a positive result for COVID-19, this can be a sign that your employee has been exposed to the illness.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your employees should be tested for COVID-19. At Medical Mobile Services, we make it simple to have your entire staff tested for this highly contagious virus. We will travel to your place of employment and provide testing for as many employees as you need. In addition to testing for current cases of COVID-19, our team can also provide you with antibody testing. This testing can help to determine if an individual has previously been infected with the virus. There is much research left to be done to understand how these antibodies may protect against future exposure, meaning even if someone has a positive result for COVID-19 antibodies, they should continue to be careful and practice social distancing and remain vigilant with handwashing.
