Maynilad begins antibody screening test for workers
Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) said it has started the conduct of Screening Serologic Antibody Tests for returning Maynilad employees, including third-party service providers such as meter readers, desludging personnel, and other contractors prior to redeployment for fieldwork assignments.
Those with positive results in this screening will undergo further COVID-19 tests, the company said.
This activity is being implemented in partnership with the Delos Santos Medical Center of the MPIC Hospitals Group.
The water company has also instituted stringent protocols for calibrated reentry into offices.
For instance, only a third of its employees, specifically those assigned to mission-critical activities such as water and wastewater operations, are returning to their respective workplaces. The rest will sustain work-from-home arrangements.
This June, Maynilad will resume major construction projects, as well as meter reading and onsite billing activities. It will also gradually start opening its Business Area offices.
