Despite the growing number of Covid-19 cases across the country, millions of Americans traveled to visit their families this Thanksgiving. Given the year we have had, it was only natural to want to spend one of the most important family holidays with our loved ones. However, an increase in travel volume causes a higher probability of both contracting the virus and exposing others to it as well. With several weeks still left before the next holiday, keeping the workplace safe is a concern for many businesses and workers alike.


The best precaution one can make is to ensure workers get tested for the Covid-19 virus. Recent recommendations from UCSF Health, conclude that is reasonable to administer a COVID-19 test within a period of three to seven days after returning home from travel. This makes the first week of December an important milestone in ensuring the continuous workplace. Whether this means testing employees on-site, supporting them while they work remotely, or quarantine at home. Providing testing options for workers in a short period of time is a step that businesses are thinking of taking.
