Daily COVID-19 case numbers continue to shock the country and confirm we're indeed experiencing a dreaded second wave of the disease. Here's how our COVID-19 testing program can help keep your business open during these trying times.

With more than 10,000 active cases of COVID-19 in Alberta at the time of writing it's starting to get more dire in the province as hospitalization and ICU numbers rise as well. With employees starting to get more worried about contracting the virus due to the increasing number of cases, one of the best things you can do as a business owner is to provide them with timely and accurate testing to assuage their fears. Which will also help your company avoid any disruptions or closures. 

Here's how our COVID-19 testing program for businesses in Edmonton or Calgary can help.

Keep Your Business Open With Our COVID-19 Testing for Companies

If hospitalization and ICU numbers don't start to decline, we may be headed for another lockdown here in Alberta. Which could be the death knell for many businesses that were able to survive the initial one back in March.

While many in the province hope to avoid this potential worst-case scenario — business owners chief among them — there is something that can help protect companies from experiencing a disruption or closure not mandated by the province. It's Ichor Blood Services' COVID-19 Testing Program for Businesses, and here is how it can help.

Creating safe cohorts by combining past and active infection testing

By combining our COVID-19 antibody testing with our PCR swab testing for active infections, you can identify your employees who have most likely come in contact with the virus and are now afforded some form of protection against reinfection.

This will allow you to create cohorts within your company where the risk of being reinfected with SARS-CoV-2 amongst its members is low, helping facilitate continuity plans in cases where an active infection has been recorded among your ranks. Which can be identified right away with our PCR swab testing.


Allowing you to quickly identify and isolate infected employees

Our PCR swab testing for active infections will let your business quickly identify any employees who are infected with the virus so you can minimize the threat of them spreading it to other workers. This will help your company avoid a massive disruption due to a large contingent of your workers coming down with COVID-19. 

When used in conjunction with other health and safety measures such as physical distancing, staggered start times, frequent sanitizing, and the wearing of masks, PCR swab testing for active infections will aid your business in keeping the risk of virus transmission low.


An added layer of protection

Given how much your company has probably spent already in bringing your workers back safely after the initial lockdown, choosing to enrol in Ichor Blood Services' COVID-19 Testing for Businesses program is a cost-effective way to further protect your company from experiencing a major disruption or closure. It can also help protect the investment you made in your health and safety efforts to bring employees back.
