Jobfit introduces PCR testing to reduce the risk of Coronavirus

20 May 2020 | News

Jobfit Health Group is now conducting accredited Coronavirus Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the workplace.

As workers gradually return following the COVID-19 crisis, onsite PCR testing can reduce the risk of an outbreak in the workplace.

Our comprehensive PCR testing follows national government guidelines. We work closely with local and national public health authorities, together with accredited laboratories to ensure PCR testing protocols meet the highest possible standards.

The PCR test measures the amount of the Coronavirus’s genetic material in the sample which is usually a nasal and throat swab. The PCR test can detect whether the worker has the Coronavirus in their body at the time of sample collection.

A fast and clear determination is available if a worker is infected with Coronavirus. Jobfit will notify the employer and will advise the worker to contact their general practitioner. All positive PCR tests are automatically provided to local public health authorities, as required by law.

PCR testing has been added to the suite of services offered by Jobfit to assist workplaces in the fight against COVID-19. Other services include onsite symptom screening checks and flu vaccinations, Telehealth, pandemic procedure planning, and senior doctor advisory service.

Jobfit remains committed to delivering occupational health solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of organisations. If you are interested in PCR testing or other Coronavirus services for your workplace, please contact us.
