On-Site COVID-19 Testing
May 28, 2020
Freedom is excited to announce a new proactive process control measure to our existing Pandemic Plan: We are partnering with the local health department and the National Guard to offer onsite COVID-19 testing to our employees.
This new process control measure will enable Freedom to support our local health department’s mission of getting more people tested to learn more about this virus and how we can stop the spread. Additionally, this gives Freedom employees peace of mind that we are doing everything we can to keep our facilities safe and validate the health of our employees. This initiative will also help us learn more about additional protective measures that can be taken in the future if COVID-19 rears itself again.
Lastly, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there is a 20%-to-50% chance that those infected with the coronavirus do not show symptoms. Yet even those asymptomatic people may be just as capable of transmitting the disease as other infected people who eventually become visibly sick.1
We believe taking temperatures at the door along with employee self-reporting is a first step toward keeping everyone safe. Still, it’s simply not enough to proactively protect the well-being of our employees. We are hopeful that this new process control measure will take us to the next level of safety and prevent any in-plant contamination.
As a company, we have had to change the way we do business in many ways to combat this virus, and the innovation that has come from our employees has been incredible. We have reinvented our company processes around COVID-19 while meeting all client SLA’s and deliveries. It’s incredible what a team can do when everyone is in alignment with the mission! Our mission is simple: take care of our clients and employees, and everything else will work itself out.
