Galway based company Galmere food production has introduced on-site PCR Covid-19 tests for its workers.
All staff at the Ballybrit facility are tested once a week, and all visitors entering the premises undergo the process too.
Nasal swabs are taken by trained members of staff, and processed on-site, in around an hour.
These tests are seen as the best way of detecting the presence of the virus, so the 70 strong staff firm worked in conjunction with My Bio to install the equipment needed to carry out the tests.
Chief Executive of Galmere food productions John Casey told Midwest News that he felt it was incredibly important for the company to do whatever they could to protect their workers.
