There are customers & jurisdictions that are requiring service delivery personnel to have COVID tests prior to going onto the customer premises. is your company covering the testing cost for your employees? Are you covering the testing cost for a 3rd party provider performing services on your company's behalf?

    As we are located in Canada this is not an issue, several of us (myself) included have been tested. In my case I got the answer in six hours (negative fortunately) and for others the answer has come in twelve to twenty four hours (all negative). But we would pay for this in principle as protecting our workforce is a core value and we allocate budget to this. One the other hand, as with any other cost, there is a finite amount of money, so it would need to depend on a risk/reward assessment.
