US company CDT chooses NexJ for COVID screening
August 12, 2020
TORONTO – NexJ Health, a provider of advanced virtual care for chronic disease prevention and management announced that Comprehensive Drug Testing, Inc. (CDT) and WorkWell Enterprises will be using NexJ Connected Wellness for COVID-19 screening of their employees and clients.
CDT, a leading drug testing company headquartered in California, administers and manages drug testing programs for clients across North America, facilitating over 100,000 tests annually. Industries served by CDT include professional sports leagues, post-secondary and public-school systems, transportation, industrial, retail, and state and federal government entities.
The program, initially being rolled out in California, enables in-home screening and monitoring through NexJ Connected Wellness to prevent community spread of COVID-19. As part of the program, CDT employees will be screened daily on COVID-19 risk and exposure and will also have access to mobile monitoring of temperature and respiratory symptoms. Employees that are cleared for workplace access are assigned an indicator on their phone, visible from 6 feet away. The process is repeated each day, ensuring daily compliance of client screening requirements.
By allowing employers to conduct population reporting and to safely manage their workforce through the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is designed to ensure a safe and fair workplace environment, whether that environment is an office, a school, or a sporting arena.
Through multimedia education in the form of guidelines and how-to’s curated from CDC and WHO, as well as social connectivity and support through employees’ personal circle of care and online forums, the program can help employees cope with difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are thrilled to be offering COVID-19 screening and monitoring to our employees and our clients through NexJ Connected Wellness,” said Art McGill, VP at Comprehensive Drug Testing. “We look forward to a long-term partnership with NexJ Health, helping to make the environment as safe as possible for employees, students, faculty, staff, athletes, and everyone else attempting to resume a more normal cadence to life.”
“We are very pleased to be working alongside Comprehensive Drug Testing to drive continued growth in the US market, beginning by offering COVID-19 screening and monitoring to their employees in California, and then to their clients across the nation including professional sports leagues, public and post-secondary school systems, transportation, industrial and retail industries,” said Janine Tatham (pictured), VP of strategic accounts at NexJ Health.
