ActioNet is joining a growing number of businesses that are instituting mandatory temperature checks as people return to work. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has encouraged businesses to conduct daily in-person screenings to slow the spread of coronavirus. When entering the ActioNet facility there is a temperature monitor placed outside of the reception area for self-temperature check. All who wish to gain entrance to the ActioNet suite, employees, and visitors alike, must receive a normal temperature reading before being allowed access inside the office suite.
ActioNet has also instituted a digital visitor logbook kiosk. The digital logbook allows reporting of who and why you are visiting and collects data needed for security audit requirements. When a visitor arrives, they perform a self-temperature scan. The receptionist grants access to the suite for all that scan with a normal temperature reading, they are invited to check-in on the iPad, where they are asked to enter their full name, US citizen status, who they are visiting and the purpose of the visit. The receptionist is notified when the check-in is complete, and the visitor is ready to be greeted. At the end of the visit, the receptionist will prompt the guest to self-sign-out at the kiosk by entering the first 3 letters of their first name. The digital logbook will locate your name. Verify your name, hit enter and you are all signed out with date and time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much about how we work. And things probably won’t go back to normal anytime soon. Even after the pandemic passes, it’s hard to see us going back to the way work used to be.
