COVID-19 Workplace Testing – Ron Hull Group Help Keep Employees Safe
Lateral flow devices (LFDs) are one of the new tools being used to help us to detect and fight COVID-19.
Between one in four and one in three people who have coronavirus never show any symptoms but that does not mean they are not infectious.
These devices can help identify people who have high levels of virus who do not have symptoms and would not otherwise be coming forward for a test. These tests detect the majority of cases with high levels of virus, who are the most likely to transmit the virus. Tests can reliably be used to detect individuals with the virus that we would not otherwise be able to find. Every positive individual detected can stop a chain of transmission once these individuals isolate for 10 days.
They are one of the tools we can use to reduce the risk of transmission in the workplace and keep our staff safe.
