Preventative measures are usually the easiest to put in place and offer the best defence in preventing a potential outbreak. Testing and or screening at point of entry can include asking the below questions:
- Are exhibiting flu-like symptoms such as fever, tiredness, coughing, or congestion
- Have they travelled outside of Canada within the past 14 days
- Have they come into contact with someone with a confirmed or probable contagious disease
- Have they been working on a site that was shut down due to a probable contagious disease
Another preventative measure is through use a of thermometer to check for high body temperature. This can be achieved through, ear scanning, temperature IR gun, and for larger crowds companies may wish to use mass temperature scanners such as Omnisense SentryMk4.
