Mass Covid-19 testing on NCH project
1st February 2021
New measure will ensure continued progress of vital national infrastructure
BAM has introduced weekly Covid-19 testing for all workers at the New Children’s Hospital (NCH) site. This will bolster the already strict mitigation protocols in place at the site and will see more than 1,000 workers tested every week in a partnership with Irish company, HealthWatch Screening.
It is expected to identify small numbers of positive cases prior to any symptoms appearing, further reducing the risk of transmission and giving even greater security and confidence to all stakeholders involved in the project.
