The Greater Taylor Chamber of Commerce is offering free BinexNow rapid Covid-19 antigen test kits to Chamber-member businesses in a program created by the Office of the Governor and Texas Division of Emergency Management.
“We are excited about this opportunity for our members and hope it will help them keep their businesses and employees safe,” Chamber President and C.E.O. Tia Rae Stone said. “We hope it will allow businesses to shorten costly employee quarantines and better manage COVID exposure of workers.”
The testing is limited to Chamber business members and their employees and is not available to the general public or to family members of employees.
“We have only a limited supply of these tests,” Stone said. “And their sole purpose is to help businesses stay open as much as possible.”
Testing will be offered to businesses in two ways.
The first is for larger businesses that are able to assign a testing and reporting administrator. These businesses will be trained, supplied with kits and will then be able to perform the tests at their own job sites.
The Chamber will perform testing for businesses with smaller employee counts where on-site testing may not be practical. These tests will be done by appointment only and all test subjects are required to arrive at the site properly wearing a mask.
The Chamber welcomes new or renewing business members at any time throughout the year. Call 512-352-6364 for information.
