Employers have always played a role in the health and safety of their employees. During this pandemic, employers have an opportunity to embrace this pivotal role and fight against COVID-19 and the impact it has in our community.

Citran Occupational Health can provide employers a strategy to identify risk of infection in the workplace so businesses can confidently return to work while protecting their employees and slowing the spread of the virus.

COVID-19 RNA Test

Testing has become a fundamental part of slowing the spread of the coronavirus to control transmission. Citran is now offering the COVID-19 RNA test to asymptomatic employees to help detect whether individuals have the virus.

Employers can confidently hire new employees or return employees to work who were possibly exposed to the coronavirus or have recently returned from a high-risk area.
