How to Implement a Temperature Screening Solution in Your Location
Fever detection technology is only effective when your business has a plan to install and implement temperature screenings in your location
Temperature screening devices are one solution your Jersey City, NJ, business can utilize to help curb the spread of the coronavirus in stores, restaurants, medical centers, workplaces, gyms, schools and other public locations. A fever detection system identifies people with an elevated temperature and sends out an alert before they enter a site. Fever is one of the most common symptoms of coronavirus.
While there are many new products on the market, here at Alliance, we recommend TAURI temperature-check tablets, which use heat-mapping technology to take someone’s temperature within +/- 0.9°F accuracy. But for fever detection technology to be effective, your business needs to have a strategic plan in place to install and implement temperature screenings in your location. Keep reading to learn 3 tips to help guide you through the process.
1. Call Alliance Telecommunications
Our professional techs make setup and installation fast and easy. We’ll install the hardware, configure the software and customize the tablet settings to your specifications. We’ll also test your system to make sure it’s working correctly, so your rollout isn’t held up by troubleshooting issues.
2. Set Your Temperature Range
What counts as a fever? According to health care standards, normal body temperature ranges from 97.5°F to 99.5°F. A body temperature ranging from 99.6°F to 100.3°F is a low-grade fever. And a body temperature of 100.4°F or higher is a fever. With these standards in mind, your business needs to set an acceptable temperature range to allow admittance into your location. In high-traffic places, even a low-grade fever may be a concern for your business.
3. Determine the Screening Process and Follow-Up Actions
You may be wondering how you can implement an effective screening process without putting your employees at greater risk on the ground floor to monitor compliance. Luckily, all TAURI temperature-check tablets come with HDMI output, so that a dedicated staff member can monitor the results from a safe distance. And the tablets provide a result within 1 second, making it possible for your business to quickly and efficiently screen large groups of people without disrupting traffic flow. Your business can also use tools like digital signage to provide clear instructions and guide people through the screening process.
If someone has a body temperature outside the set range, the tablet will emit an alarm. Your business should have a plan in place to manage people who are flagged. Because multiple factors — like weather or exercise — may cause someone to have an abnormal temperature, secondary screening measures may be necessary for flagged individuals. Secondary measures may include taking a manual temperature or alerting people if they’ve been exposed to anyone sick.
