States and public health officials across the country have implemented strict measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and some jurisdictions are requiring employers to screen their employees before entering the workplace.  

Meeting the mandates can seem overwhelming. In New York, for example, firms must implement daily employee and visitor health screening. This includes:

  • Completing a questionnaire to determine if the individual has tested positive, exhibited symptoms or been in contact with someone infected in the proceeding 14 days
  • Maintaining a log of every person who may have had contact with any other individual entering a work area (should someone be carrying the virus) and notifying health officials of this information should a suspected case arise
  • Sharing information with authorities on employees and visitors entering the workplace dating back 48 hours before an employee experienced symptoms or tested positive

These are unchartered waters for most businesses, as requirements such as these are unprecedented. How do they implement questionnaires? How do they track records? How do they enforce negative test results and keep the sick from entering the workplace? And how do you track potential contacts if someone is infected?

Kastle Systems, a national managed security leader in 47 states, can help companies execute these procedures to simplify the screening process. Kastle has developed an integrated set of functions called KastleSafeSpaces that enables workplaces to quickly implement:

1 | Remote self-screening with detailed criteria

2 | Automated occupant/employees record keeping of daily test results

3 | Physical access control maintained around the clock in order to enforce screening results each day
