Testing Employees for COVID at Healthcare Facilities

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we’ve been hearing about its effect on healthcare settings. Healthcare is the most important industry in fighting COVID-19, but as early as April, at least 90,000 medical professionals had been infected with the virus. Utilizing quick and accurate COVID-19 testing at your facility is one of the best ways to protect your staff—and your patients.

Healthcare workers are at the frontlines of this pandemic, even those who are not working directly with patients who have COVID-19. People with chronic illnesses—especially if they are not receiving care for those illnesses—are some of the most susceptible to severe illness from the virus.  

Many types of healthcare can help people manage symptoms of a chronic illness. Many types of healthcare can also be preventative, working towards overall well-being. Employees at your facility are called essential for a reason; we need them. The job of keeping people healthy has always been important—and right now it’s urgent.

COVID-19 testing will help your employees feel safe so that they can do their jobs effectively. Keeping your staff safe is crucial for the safety of everyone.

Testing gives you the power of knowledge. It ensures that there are no asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic people spreading the virus to other staff. If an employee tests positive, they can rest at home for the CDC-recommended two weeks and safely return once they test negative.

Avalon Laboratory Solutions wants to help protect your staff and patients. We offer a full Employee Preparedness Program, which includes: directed testing efforts, contact tracing, help making your space conducive to social distancing, and access to personal protective equipment (PPE). Your employees will feel comfortable coming to work—and thus will thrive at their jobs.
