Workplace COVID-19 Testing and Screening Services

We help you develop protocols for:

  • Checking temperatures of employees immediately prior to their shift
  • Testing employees who screen positive. Learn more about COVID-19 Testing »
  • Appropriate actions to take for employees who screen or test positive to keep them safe — while also getting them back to work as soon as possible
  • Clearing workers to return to work

If an employee needs medical care, presents with respiratory or flu-like symptoms, or has been exposed to a known or suspected case of COVID-19, our urgent care center is available. We offer COVID-19 testing and prompt treatment for most minor injuries and illnesses.

Preventive Services

We help you determine the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needed for your personnel based on your industry and specific job functions being performed. We will also assess and confirm that you have proper protocols in place for social distancing, hand washing or sanitizing, and use of masks.
