Introducing Discovery COVID-19 Business Support

These support services will assist you and your management teams in formulating and executing an effective response to COVID-19 to protect your employees during this pandemic. Discovery COVID-19 Business Support includes a support centre managed by healthcare professionals at multiple levels of expertise. The support centre can assist you and your employees across prevention methods, symptom identification, employee risk classification, testing, and case management of COVID-19 positive cases, as well as mitigation against misinformation that can distract from clinical health prevention support.
Discovery COVID-19 Business Support also offers:
- Support for management
Support for your management and your employees through access to the Discovery COVID-19 employer toolkit as well as a hotline directly to a team of healthcare professionals who are available 24/7 with the latest information and guidance relating to COVID-19.
- Case management for suspected COVID-19 cases
In the event of a suspected case, employees will be referred by the employer to the COVID-19 hotline where a comprehensive screening and triage process will be performed. In the event of a positive COVID-19 case, Discovery will manage the individual case including isolation, daily check-ins, and confirmation for safe return to work. In addition, Discovery will facilitate tracing to understand the extent of the exposure in the workplace, provide guidance on disinfection protocols and daily reporting for executive management on all suspected and confirmed cases.
We hope that you and your employees will stay safe and healthy during this time.
