Irving, Texas - (NewMediaWire) - June 25, 2020 - In an endeavor to show support and provide extra precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Gibson Diagnostic Labs, a leading clinical diagnostic laboratory, has donated personal protective equipment and educational resources to its partners as well as to homeless shelters, first responders and food banks to help them maintain a safe workplace environment. 

Provided to nearly one dozen companies, these supplies include face shields, masks, gowns, and hand sanitizer and will play a key role in ensuring employers are aware of and take the necessary precautions so that their employees can make an educated decision on when they return to their respective workplaces. The donated supplies were dropped off at various establishments across Greater Houston and the DFW metroplex. 

In addition, Gibson Diagnostic Labs created educational resources for businesses to use to aid in keeping their employees up-to-date and informed on COVID-19 developments. Materials to note include: a COVID-19 Fact Sheet, which highlights the characteristics of the disease and details Gibson Diagnostic Lab’s testing protocol; a COVID-19 Questionnaire, which allows users to identify whether or not their symptoms could be related to the virus and if they should seek testing; and a Risk and Quarantine Criteria Checklist, which provides insight into which populations are the most vulnerable. All of these documents and additional information can be found and downloaded on Gibson Diagnostic Lab’s website to ensure everyone in the community can take advantage of these resources.

“It’s a very unusual and difficult time we are in right now. We want to make sure we are doing everything we can, not only for our clients and partners, but more importantly, for the individuals of the community,” said Ali Shah, Principal of Gibson Diagnostic Labs. “The Gibson team worked diligently to guarantee that useful and impactful PPE was distributed, and that we helped keep the public informed on how to stay safe and aware during the shutdown, and more importantly, the subsequent re-opening of businesses and the economy.”

The Gibson Diagnostic Labs team is ready to assist all patients with personalized, professional service to deliver the highest level of quality diagnostic testing. The staff continues to work diligently to increase testing capacity on a timely basis in response to the public health crisis.
