U/A's/ COVID-19

Posted

Hey everyone! Mississipi hasn't been on lockdown so I am assuming we still do our random drug tests. Alot of businesses here are just doing call in/take out orders but I know our clinics and urgent care centers are open . I did my last U/A on 3/16- right when this all began! So I am just wondering whats gonna happen now that there are more and more cases every day and more deaths! If this all gets worse I sure dont want to go into clinics and get exposed! But I will do it if I have to of course! 🙂

It for sure is scary. Texas is kind of playing it by ear. Right now, we are still expected to test, but they have stated they may do more extensive testing when its all over. I cannot afford all the expensive HFT and nails, etc -- ugh!

To be honest, I have NOT been picked ALL month. I have limited testing requirements anyway, but I figured I would have had at least one. My last one was 2/26

You know darn well when this is over they will be ordering super expensive tests to cover the cash their buddies lost during the crisis.

That and one of the options they are stating in TX is the possibility of extending the monitoring agreements if we cannot test.

Ugh that sux spank!!

Oh yeah every inch of suck!! I literally can’t get this mess outta my mind. I’m not gonna let this wreck me but I feel I've held up my end of the deal so release me already. I simply cannot understand in the age to telecommunications where actual md appointments are done online they can’t do this remotely

Mine has been de facto extended because the crisis came during my due date to be released

That is such BS. This should not in any way, shape or form, stop them from releasing you!

That is absolute crap! I am starting to worry myself. I will be done in July, while hopefully this is over by then I know the board has suspended all meetings. I have continued to check in as normal but have yet to get sent for a screen

A lot of our labs that do RAMP NJ testing are just closed. Their websites don't tell you this so you get to go there and find out that they are closed. Good Luck. we are needed so much at our jobs and these tests make us late for work and now we get to go in even later going from lab to lab with a full bladder.
