As Drillimation Systems was dealing with the two patients diagnosed with COVID-19 over the past two weeks, Drillimation has now confirmed that three more employees, all of whom are students, have tested positive for COVID-19. The previously two employees have since recovered, and no deaths have been reported as of this writing. Drillimation remains diligent in quickly identifying and confirming cases, tracing close contact, and implement quarantines to affected employees. We will continue publishing updates on either a weekly or biweekly basis.
Since Drillimation’s return to Mercyhurst University over a month ago, Drillimation has been praised for performing admirably in restricting social interactions within their studios. After reviewing the procedures for the first time, the university is beginning to lessen restrictions and permit their employees to interact with others in other buildings. This will be a gradual and controlled process until a vaccine for COVID-19 becomes available. Employees must continue to observe all other safety measures on their campus.
Even though these limited rules are being somewhat relaxed, Drillimation Systems will continue to strictly enforce all other COVID-19 policies, including prohibiting guests from entering the studio for safety reasons. Employees could face severe consequences if anyone is found in violation. The safety measures, such as wearing face masks, maintaining social distancing, and monitoring one another for symptoms continue to remain at the studio. The majority of confirmed cases have been linked with interactions off-campus. As Drillimation embraces themselves for the incoming “twindemic”, which could be a possible resurgence of the coronavirus and the usual flu season, it’s important that their employees who are students stay on-campus and limit travel off-campus as possible.
Drillimation has achieved a great deal over the past several months, and will remain strong in the days ahead. Drillimation is considering new tools and methods to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Starting next week, Drillimation will introduce a new and improved self-screening process for their employees.
