Keeping operations running and employees safe
The pandemic has continued to challenge businesses' ability to keep the doors open and employees and communities safe. As we enter a new phase of the pandemic every few months, one thing remains constant: testing alongside vaccines is our best defense against COVID-19. But how can companies offer testing at scale? The US government has not yet provided guidelines for setting up workplace testing programs even though they are crucial to mitigating outbreaks. The COVID-19 rapid screening program playbook meets that need.
