Email #10 - Governor of Ohio Mike DeWine requested that every employer take the temperature of every employee every day before they come into work

03/19/2020

Governor of Ohio Mike DeWine requested that every employer take the temperature of every employee every day before they come into work.  With 700 employees, this would prove to be logistically very difficult.  But to be fair to the Governor’s request we are considering how we might be able to comply.

In the meantime, we are asking each employee to take personable accountability and take their own temperature at home before coming into work.  If you have a fever of 100.4º or more, we ask that you do not report to work and notify us.  Each employee’s health and safety is valuable to us. We are asking that everyone do their part, and together, we can limit exposure to the virus.

CDC considers a person to have a fever when he or she has a measured temperature of at least 100.4 °F [38 °C]: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/maritime/definitions-signs-symptoms-conditions-ill-travelers.html#:~:text=CDC%20considers%20a%20person%20to,F%20%5B38%20%C2%B0C%5D.
