MonaBilkoo

Yes we do the same and if they have symptoms they must get tested. However, a lot of inquires ask how often we test them. We don't have policy in place that requires aides to be tested on a regular basis. I would like to know If any agencies are testing their aides every 2 weeks/once a month like facilities do?
Marie Youngblood

prior to starting we test the aide

Its such a false sense of security. They can be exposed the very next day after receiving a test. I explain that to our clients so that they understand and know all obstacles.

Testing in conjunction with safety protocol, temp taking
