Covid isolation centres for TCS staff

We have heard heartening stories of some companies going the extra mile to take care of their employees. For instance, some have instituted WFH perks, help with chairs, furniture, broadband bills, arranged ergonomic consultations and mental health counselling sessions, as also Covid-19 leave benefits. Software major TCS has gone a step further and set up First Line Covid-19 Isolation centres across the country for its associates and their families. Equipped with a competent medical team, these centres will provide support to TCS associates and their dependants (spouse, children, and parents/parents-in-law) who are asymptomatic/mildly Covid-19 positive with no other co-morbidities or medical history/complications. The facilities are available in 11 cities.
