Island Holdings (IH) and its family of companies (Island Insurance, PACXA, Hoike Services, Tradewind Capital Group, Atlas Insurance Agency, and Pyramid Insurance) have partnered with Hawai‘i Pacific Health (HPH) and Clinical Labs of Hawai‘i to provide IH employees with free voluntary COVID-19 antibody testing.
Considering that people who have had no symptoms have tested positive for COVID-19, IH understands many employees are interested to find out ifthey had a COVID-19 infection. The antibody test will help to answer the question of whether an individual has any evidence of prior exposure to COVID-19.
The test is not used to identify an active COVID-19 infection, it instead will be helpful to understand what the level of exposure has been in our population. This is important information as we move to resume a more normal level of activity in the Hawaii community.
IH has prioritized this initiative in the best interests of employees and will not be notified of individual testing results. However, de-identified test results will be shared with HPH to be used in aggregate reports to understand how many people tested have had exposure to COVID-19. HPH will learn a lot about how widespread COVID-19 infections have been, and this will help add to the information used to reopen Hawai‘i.
We are proud to be a part of the Island Holding of family of companies who does right for our employees!
