St. Luke’s helps local companies protect workers – and global supply chain


As the global supply chain has come under increasing strain during the COVID-19 pandemic, large, local manufacturers and essential businesses in the region, from grocery packing facilities to bottled water manufacturers, aren’t taking chances when it comes to protecting their employees and their ability to provide essential goods and services. These businesses are working with St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine to provide COVID-19 screening services to protect the health and well-being of their workers and to mitigate the spread of the disease.

Kyra Dodson, St. Luke’s worksite injury prevention coordinator, is spearheading this effort. “Currently, we are screening more than 6,000 employees daily from 15 businesses which are based in various counties throughout the region, including Lehigh, Northampton, and Montgomery counties,” said Dodson. “More are coming online. We expect to be screening over 10,000 employees from more than 25 businesses in coming weeks and expand our reach into Berks and Monroe counties.”
