COVID-19 Screenings for Essential Austin Employees

COVID-19 Screening Service

Safeguard Your Employees and Your Business During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The CDC has recommended employers conduct COVID-19 screening, including temperature checks for workers. This step is already in place for many healthcare workers. Employers in other industries who are keeping their operations open are adopting similar COVID-19 screening practices. Typically, this occurs at the start of shifts as employees are reporting to work and allows the employer to identify anyone exhibiting symptoms and proactively send them home to avoid possible spread of the virus on the employer’s premises.
