Walmart To Check Workers’ Temperature Daily
WALMART AND SAM'S CLUB TO CHECK WORKERS EVERY DAY FOR CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS
Kansas City, MO (KSHB)- Walmart and Sam’s Club have announced they are going to start screening employees for coronavirus symptoms.
In an attempt to stop the spread of the virus, the retailers said Tuesday they will begin to take workers’ temperatures to check for fever.
That’s expected to start within the next three weeks, after facilities receive thermometers.
Employees will also be asked questions to help assess the status of their health.
The presidents and CEO’s of Walmart and Sam’s Club stated on Tuesday, “Any associate with a temperature of 100 degrees will be asked to go home and seek medical treatment. They will be paid for reporting to work, but they won’t be able to return until they are fever-free for at least three days.”
The retailers also say they will now provide masks and gloves to employees who ask, as long as supplies are available.
