THE SM STORE CONDUCTS RAPID MASS TESTING FOR EMPLOYEES

MAY 21, 2020

While COVID-19 testing has not been formally required by the government, The SM Store has taken the initiative with on-going rapid mass testing for its employees and affiliates to ensure the safety and health of employees and customers.

Rapid tests are now being conducted and facilitated by the HRM departments across all The SM Store branches and at the SMX Convention Center for head office employees.

Prior to testing, employees are also asked to answer a health survey. Testing is done in batches—employees are mandated to wear face masks at all times, have their body temperature checked upon entry, disinfect their shoes on a foot mat, and practice social distancing at all times.

Employees whose results are negative are cleared for work, however, those with positive results will be guided to an isolation area where they’ll be provided further assistance. The SM Store is one with the country in praying for the healing and recovery of all those affected by this pandemic. For more updates, please follow The SM Store on Facebook and Instagram.
