Are you worried that the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Alberta and across Canada will cause your business to shut down? Here's how COVID-19 antibody testing can help keep your doors open and your business running smoothly.

There's no denying that we're currently experiencing a significant second wave of COVID-19 in Alberta and across most parts of the country. With new grim records in terms of daily case counts and hospitalizations continually being set, business owners and organizations are right to be worried that everything could soon come to a screeching halt if further lockdowns are imposed. But with COVID-19 antibody testing, you can at least put your company or group in the best position possible to remain open and operational during these difficult and trying times.

How COVID-19 Antibody Testing for Your Business or Organization Can Keep It Running Smoothly

COVID-19 antibody testing is being used to identify those individuals who have potentially come in contact with the SARS-CoV-2 and may now have the antibodies for it. While there is still lots to be learned about the antibodies our immune system develops when fighting off the virus, primarily regarding how long these antibodies afford us some form of protection against being reinfected, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says confirmed and suspected cases of reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 have been reported but remain rare.

Given the rarity with which reinfection seems to occur, it is generally believed that having the antibodies for COVID-19 confers immunity to those with them, at least for a short period of time. Having this information available to your business or organization can help you separate employees or workers based on whether they've been exposed to the virus or not. Creating these sorts of 'cohorts' amongst your workers can help mitigate the impact a positive COVID-19 test has on your business or operation, allowing you to remain open and profitable during these challenging times.


What Businesses or Groups Can Benefit from COVID-19 Antibody Testing?

When used in combination with our COVID-19 PCR swab testing for active infections, COVID-19 antibody testing for companies or businesses is an effective way to safeguard your operations during these difficult times.
