Text-message health-screening company Picohealth offers businesses a free tool, COVID-19 Employee Health Screening Requirements by State, to make sense of constantly changing COVID-19 symptom and temperature screening requirements in all 50 states.
Each week, states are issuing return-to-work guidelines and executive orders mandating how employers should keep their workplaces safe. But with frequent changes to these guidelines — often updated weekly and specific to each industry — businesses encounter confusion about the requirements that apply to them.
Picohealth has distilled these guidelines into an easy-to-use tool that companies can use to see what they’re required to implement — and what’s just recommended. By simply selecting their state and industry in the COVID-19 Health Screening Requirements tool, managers can see at a glance the COVID symptom questions they’re required to ask employees, when they should screen employees, and if they need to consider temperature checks in addition to symptom screening.
