Many employers are choosing to return to office life. Considering COVID is still running rampant in our communities, it’s important to ensure our employees are educated and have the proper resources to remain safe. There are several different choices regarding COVID testing, and part of what we can do is provide information to our staff for both themselves and their families. Frequent testing should be an encouraging option, especially if staff are exposed to many people or are involved in large events. Ideally, regular on-site tests for employees in Charlotte should be provided.
If you intend to have your employees inside a building together, providing them with options for testing is critical. You can also take a lot of preventative measures in the office to minimize exposure. For example, you can choose a larger room with more distance between staff instead of doing meetings in a small conference room. You could also hold meetings in smaller groups, outside, or on video platforms such as Zoom.
Pertinent times for people to be tested are when they are exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, after attending a large event such as a wedding, after traveling, or when they feel ill. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include loss of taste/smell, exhaustion, aches, fever, and cough. Should they exhibit any of these symptoms, they should immediately quarantine and be tested.
Where to Get Tested
Ensure that your employees have the resources needed should they become ill, including where they can go to be tested. Typically, pharmacies and physician offices can complete testing. Many urgent care centers or hospital sites will also conduct tests. Please provide them with a list of local resources and preventative methods such as frequent handwashing and wearing masks. Vaccination locations can also be offered.
Some companies will provide on-site testing for your employees, as well as in-home testing. This is a great way to get several individuals tested at once at a convenient location. Drip Hydration offers to test for groups of ten or more, with results available in as little as one day. Rapid antigen tests can be completed in fifteen minutes. When scheduled, a certified nurse will come to the location of your choice and administer the test you have purchased.
