The Villar Group of Companies has started the free rapid testing of its employees before office work resumes during the modified enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.
“Before we resume our operations, we want to ensure the safety of our employees and their families, and really make sure that our offices, our sites and workplaces are COVID-free,” said Villar Group Chairman Manuel B. Villar.
The Villar group uses FDA-approved rapid testing strictly in accordance with all the guidelines and issuances of the Department of Health on the use thereof.
Before the rapid testing, all offices of the Villar Group were disinfected and sanitized. Thermal scanners and foot baths were also placed at the entrances of offices.
Welcome back kits containing alcohol, face masks, and face shield were also prepared for distribution to every employee.
Shuttle services will also be provided for employees who will be manning the offices. Likewise, board and lodging near the project sites and offices were also made available for employees who may want to move near their workplaces.
