FDA Organises Free COVID-19 Testing For Staff
The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) as part of measures to protect public health and safety has for the second time organized COVID-19 testing for its workers to ensure that its staff and offices remain safe for conducting business.
At the staff durbar, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Delese Darko reiterated the need for all staff to stay safe while assuring them of the Authority's continuous support for all who may test positive.
To this end, the FDA set up a COVID-19 Task Force in March 2020 to ensure that both staff and visitors adhere strictly to all the safety protocols and are protected from contracting the virus.
Staff who tested positive for the virus as well as their contacts traced were required to self-isolate and given the necessary medical assistance.
The Authority added that it will therefore continually put in place measures to ensure the safety of all who visit any of its offices across the country.
Visitors are advised to ensure strict adherence to all the safety protocols such as the washing of hands and the wearing of face masks at all times that they visit any of the FDA Offices to conduct business.
