As companies and organizations reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic, workplace reentry strategies are crucial to reducing risks of COVID-19 infection within the community.
As new outbreaks and surges in COVID-19 cases are reported across our nation, return-to-work strategies are proving to keep employees, contractors, staff, students, customers, and business owners safe from infection. Workplace reentry programs for COVID-19 improve the overall safety of an organization as business operations resume and continue.
That’s why our medical team at Because Health continues to make it easier for companies to test employees and mitigate coronavirus-related health risks.
"Regular testing is critical as we all work together to lower risks of infection and death in assisted living facilities, academic institutions, retail and grocery chains, restaurants and coffee shops, manufacturing plants—anywhere that people live, work, and gather close to each other," says Anders Boman, founder and CEO of Because Health.
Recently, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) updated its COVID-19 resources to state that employers may test employees for COVID-19 infection before they enter the workplace, since an infected employee who enters the workplace poses a direct threat to the health of others.
“My employees were feeling anxious about coming back to work. Having on-site testing was really convenient. The medical professionals were excellent.” Thomas Carpi, Owner, Park Towers Management

We Make it Easy
At Because Health, we help your organization manage its COVID-19 response strategy each step of the way, including your return-to-work programs, policy compliance, workplace exposure risk assessment and mitigation, and so much more.
Below, discover the 4 main components of our Workplace Health program.
1. Baseline Testing & Repeat Tests
Our PCR diagnostic tests and antibody serological assays are FDA-authorized and processed by CLIA-certified facilities. We provide test results within 72 hours or less. Our super fast turnaround times are in direct contrast to public clinics that experience result wait times of up to five weeks.
2. Risk Assessments & Recommendations
Risk assessments are meant to protect your employees, inform testing strategy, and prevent reintegration of asymptomatic carriers and/or at-risk workers into the workplace. We help ensure that high-risk employees are identified and properly considered.
3. Wellness Checks & Employer Dashboard
Wellness checks are meant to maintain a healthy work environment by verifying the health of employees before they enter the workplace. We alert you to positive screenings, and escalate cases to a medical professional for a telehealth assessment.
4. Telehealth Assessment & Guidance
Telemedicine increases the overall effectiveness of your COVID-19 response strategies by immediately connecting at-risk employees with medical professionals. If necessary, employees are remotely monitored and guided toward local medical services to ensure continuity of care.
Waiting Isn’t an Option
Covid-19 is spread via respiratory droplets, whether someone is symptomatic or asymptomatic.
Screening for infection and symptoms as well as contact tracing play critical roles in reducing COVID-19 infection and resurgence in work environments. In addition, it is medically advised to combine hand hygiene with other infection prevention and control measures, such as social distancing and wearing a mask, to prevent transmission via droplets.
Our medical team is here to help you further define and implement your company’s COVID-19 response strategy. If you have been shut down due to an outbreak, our staff can rapidly setup onsite testing to conveniently and efficiently test your workforce, reduce the risk of further transmission, and safely return to work.
“We’re doing this much faster than I had thought, which I appreciate very much. That’s on me for not realizing how efficient your turnaround is. I’m impressed, and thank you.” Allen Harris, Founder, BMM
