As governors nationwide mandate vaccines and testing for state employees, private employers have big decisions of their own to make. How can employers protect their workers and community while trying to grow a business? As the nation began a slow transition back into the workplace, the curveball of the Delta variant changed everything.
The Debate is Over
Across the nation, top employers have elected public safety over employees’ freedom of choice. A recent study by the CDC concluded that the vaccinated are eight times less likely to be infected by the Delta variant than the unvaccinated. Bringing the vaccine directly to the workplace with an on-site clinic can be the difference between a fully protected office and letting go of long-time employees.
An Unvaccinated Workforce: Testing is the Key
Consistent testing is the only safeguard to protecting a vulnerable workforce. As the U.S. remains at a 52% vaccination rate, the Delta variant has more than enough room to continue devastation. At the onset of the pandemic, testing was difficult to secure and required hundreds of single-test appointments. Testing is now a fast and cost-effective solution to protecting any workforce. On-site pooled testing saves time and resources and is now a go-to solution for companies committed to weekly testing.
Where do we go from here?
The CDC has released new guidance to wear masks in indoor settings regardless of vaccination status to curb the spread of the Delta variant. Every employer has their decisions to make. Requiring the vaccine? Weekly testing? Are masks back? With the back-to-school season and more employers encouraging workers to return to offices in the fall, a push must be made to abide by stricter COVID-19 protocols.
