Samsung Electronics Co. is getting pro-active on containing COVID-19 among its workers by setting up an in-house virus testing center as part of its on-going efforts to keep the pandemic from further disrupting production.

According to a report Monday by the Korea Herald, Samsung opened a virus testing center at its plant in Hwaseong, which is one of the company’s core facilities for research and semiconductor production, located south of Seoul.

The move makes Samsung the first company in South Korea to have an in-house COVID-19 testing facility.

The report said the center will “manage specimen collection, diagnostic tests and other related tasks with six medical professionals.”

Samsung said it decided to establish its own virus testing center “because it will save time for the company to learn about coronavirus results on thousands of its employees and workers of its subcontractors at the Hwaseong plant,” the report stated.

The announcement continued that the in-house testing center will also help the city of Hwaseong better use medical resources for its residents.

Samsung said it will use the in-house testing center in Hwaseong to gauge possibly establishing more virus testing centers at its production sites in South Korea.
