Offices, Restaurants and Retail Industry
While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected every industry, offices, restaurants, and the retail industry are the worst affected. With the country slowly limping back to normal, it has become more important than ever for restaurants, offices, and retail outlets to take precautions against COVID-19.
If you are a business owner in these industries, it is imperative that you take measures to protect not just your business but also your employees. Once you open doors and customers start walking in, the chances of your employees contracting COVID-19 significantly increases. That is why you should periodically conduct COVID-19 tests on your employees. It will give you peace of mind and prevent your employees and business from getting adversely affected by COVID-19.
Defen95 has collaborated with several offices, restaurants, and retail outlets and we regularly screen employees in these industries. We have a team of trained and certified medical experts, who can collect samples and perform on-site tests.

At Defen95, we provide offices, restaurants, and retail establishments with customized COVID-19 testing options that are approved by the FDA. We realize that businesses need to get going after a lengthy lockdown but the risk is omnipresent. That is why we have a host of testing solutions that businesses can utilize based on their requirements.
Some of the COVID-19 testing solutions that we provide are as follows:
- Testing employees in the office

- Rapid antibody testing
- PCR tests
- Home testing kits
- In-home testing facility
- Health consultation via phone
We minimize disruption to businesses and usually, offer them the rapid test that is quick and convenient. Results from a rapid test are available within 15 to 20 minutes. On the other hand, if you suspect that an employee is COVID positive, it is advisable to conduct a PCR test. We can conduct the test at your workplace or the home of the employee. Our highly trained and certified technicians use personal protection while collecting samples. They have the right tools to take nasopharyngeal swabs or saliva and these samples are tested in a CLIA-approved lab. The PCR test results are accurate and are available within 24 of sample collection.
In case an employee has quarantined themselves at home as a precautionary measure, Defen95 technicians can visit their home to collect samples. If that is not possible, we can dispatch a home testing kit to the employee and this kit comes with a shipping label. The kit is easy to use and comes with complete instructions. Once the employee collects the sample, they can mail it to Defen95.
We recommend the PCR test for suspected coronavirus infected or someone, who has come in contact with an infected person. Otherwise, the rapid test should suffice for offices, restaurants, and retail outlets that want to ensure that their employees are not infected. This will give you, your employees, and customers peace of mind. It will also prevent a shutdown that could be disastrous for your business.

It is prudent to conduct regular COVID-19 tests on employees. Testing enables you to quickly identify a positive case and the infected employee can immediately isolate so that they do not infect customers and other employees. This, in turn, will ensure your business remains safe and you reduce the chances of a total shutdown.
It is prudent to remember that offices, restaurants and retail outlets deal with hundreds of customers daily. This increases the chances of your employees getting exposed to an infected customer. By conducting regular COVID-19 tests, you keep your employees safe and healthy and ensure your business can operate without hindrance.
