COVID-19 impact: IT company start isolation centers for employees and families
In continuation with our efforts to provide the best possible support to associates and their families in such unprecedented times, one of the famous multinational Information Technology (IT) started 11 isolation centres for their employees and their families members to fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Such initiative has been started by TCS which has set up First Line COVID -19 Isolation Centres across the country to provide the first line of COVID-19 treatment for the Company's associates and their families.
These centres will provide not only medical support to associates and their dependents like spouse, children, and parents or in-law who are asymptomatic as well as mildly COVID -19 positive with no other comorbidities or medical history as well as complications.
All the centres will be provided by round the clock medical cover, along with daily monitoring by trained professionals. The patients can even connect with a counsellor virtually during their treatment.
This new benefit further strengthens TCS's commitment to the health and wellness of its people and their families during the outbreak of this global pandemic.
These Centres will function as per the various guidelines laid down by the Union Government, State Government and local bodies in compliance with the Disaster Management Act from time to time.
"Amidst the tumult of the last few months, our priority has always been to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees. TCS Health Centres in our campuses will provide isolation, comfort and treatment by the health professionals to our employees and their dependents, who are asymptomatic or have mild (COVID-19) symptoms."
