Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

Toronto, ON, Dec. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeLabs is delighted to share that after a testing campaign utilizing its WorkClear program at Santa’s Workshop located in the North Pole, all of Santa’s helpers have tested negative for COVID-19.

LifeLabs launched its testing campaign in early December to ensure Santa’s critical work could continue to be done safely in the lead up to Christmas.

With the recent confirmation of Santa Claus’ immunity to COVID-19 and his helpers’ negative COVID-19 test results in the Workshop, Santa Claus has been cleared for international travel. He will begin his worldwide journey in the days to come.

“I am incredibly proud of the LifeLabs front-line team who played a key role in supporting testing and surveillance of Santa’s Workshop to ensure that the Christmas season will go on as planned for kids around the globe,” says Charles Brown, President & CEO of LifeLabs. “Our WorkClear program continues to support businesses and essential services as they get back to work amidst the pandemic.”

WorkClear is an evidence-based approach to help Canadian companies bring employees safely back to work. This approach, guided by public health guidelines and protocols, offers an end-to-end solution that helps employers reduce the risk of workplace transmission of the Coronavirus by identifying asymptomatic and symptomatic carriers.
