Since the national holidays on April 30 and May 1, CT Group has instructed all of its employees who went to crowded and virus-hit areas to isolate themselves at home for a week. They can only return to work if they have no symptoms of infection.

The company also established a COVID-19 rapid response team to update information and handle any suspected cases of infections among emloyees. The rapid response team operates 24/7 to promptly address any arising problems.

To ensure the safety of its employees and maintain its business activities, CT Group have paid to have all of its employees tested for coronavirus from May 31. 100 per cent of the results were negative. The employees have also received their first vaccination jabs since then.

To avoid the spread of coronavirus, CT Group’s employees strictly comply with 5K regulations under close supervision by the company.

The group regularly disinfects offices including corridors, elevators, shared areas, rest rooms, basements, and floors.

In addition, CT Group has purchased antigen test kits and instructed staff in their use by medical experts. The group’s IT department has developed the Test Before Check-in system. Thus, employees can test themselves every two days and update the results to the automatic check-in system, which brings peace of mind to all employees at the company’s offices.

CT Group has not only granted each employee 100 N95 masks but also provided them with juices and food to bolster their immune systems. The group is accelerating digitalisation to increase productivity and earnings amid the pandemic. The initiatives aim to keep construction works on schedule. The group also creates favourable conditions for employees to take a rest and improve their health during the pandemic.

Thanks to its accurate prediction and comprehensive preparations since before the outbreak, CT Group has responded quickly to all situations to fulfil the dual goal of fighting the pandemic and maintaining economic growth. Meanwhile, the group has kept stable employment during the pandemic.

In addition, CT Group also supports thousands of poor people. It operates two “ATM” machines to provide free rice at 20A Truong Dinh, District 3 and 360 Hanoi Highway, Thu Duc City. The group also co-ordinates with the municipal Women's Union to provide food daily to thousands of poor people in District 4. Besides donating to the city's anti-pandemic fund, the group also takes efforts to support frontline doctors by donating salted lemons.

Moving forward, CT Group will continue to research and launch innovative devices to detect COVID-19 infections early.

“We are always ready to share our experiences and support the community,” a CT Group spokesperson said.
