SKODA AUTO offers its workforce free rapid coronavirus antibody tests
In addition to the protective measures in production, the car manufacturer’s staff at the three Czech sites can be tested for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies free of charge.
Bohdan Wojnar, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Human Resources, explained, The Safe Production and Safe Office concept with its comprehensive hygiene guidelines and rules of conduct remains the basis for the best-possible health protection at ŠKODA’s sites. By providing access to rapid coronavirus tests on a voluntary basis, we are now helping with detecting potential infections earlier and more comprehensively, thus allowing us to react more quickly with the appropriate measures precisely where they are needed.
The tests are carried out at ŠKODA AUTO’s clinics in Mladá Boleslav and Kvasiny, and at the Klaudiánova Hospital in Mladá Boleslav. ŠKODA AUTO is therefore providing a daily capacity of up to 250 tests in Rychnov nad Kněžnou between 19 and 31 May for the staff members concerned, so they can return to their workplaces in the Kvasiny plant as planned.
