Testing to create safe environments for staff
From routine weekly testing, to extreme 'bubbles', regular testing schedules are the key to ensuring a Covid-safe working environment. Early virus detection and identification of asymptomatic patients helps to keep the entire workforce safe.
Social distancing and personal protection measures
In addition to rigorous testing, risk assessments, and the adoption of social distancing, PPE and hand washing and sanitising stations all contribute to a safer working environment. In reality, for film and TV productions these measures aren't always feasible, so creating a workable solution that helps to mitigate risk is vital.
Speed of turnaround for test results
Factoring in testing to production schedules puts the emphasis on speed. Fast turnaround of results is key in keeping productivity high, whilst fostering a safe working environment. A combination of testing methods as science evolves will further ensure that schedule deadlines continue to be met.
The Covid landscape is changing rapidly as research and science evolve. Continual monitoring of these changes by a trusted clinical partner will be crucial in helping to continually adapt protocols.
