Information technology jobs in the United States have been a hot topic for months, with many businesses announcing layoffs, and others raising prices.
But now, a study from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests a simple test could be the difference between staying safe and getting hurt.
Read moreThe American Academy in its latest update on the issue of workplace exposures says there is no reliable way to determine whether an individual is exposed to the virus.
The AAP says that while there are many methods to test for exposure to coronovirus, they are often not practical for most workers and could pose risks to workers and their families.
The AAP is recommending that workers be tested with a saliva swab taken from their lips to confirm they are infected.
The AAB says this test would be available in hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities.
If you or anyone you know has been exposed, seek immediate medical attention.
If your symptoms worsen, or you experience any symptoms that may not be symptoms of coronaviruses, seek urgent medical attention immediately.
If symptoms worsen again, or symptoms do not improve for another day, seek medical attention for additional tests and follow up with your health care provider.
The report recommends testing for coronaviral symptoms and other potential symptoms in the workplace.
The CDC is also asking all employers to test their workers for coronoviruses and their employees.
If you or any of your employees have been exposed and have not been tested, call the CDC at 1-800-CDC-INFO to get a copy of your current test results and a copy if possible.
