With businesses reopening, the ebb and flow of visitors into an office has returned. Whether it’s the delivery driver, an interview candidate, or maybe a coworker’s husband, office lobbies and check-in counters are constantly moving. During the COVID era, it’s now more important than ever to know exactly who is coming into the office and what their current health status is before they ever reach your doors.
A key way to do this is through using a visitor management system that can provide pre-screening questionnaires, ensuring that the digital check-in process is completed before they get to your building. Pre-screening questions will vary depending on your industry. Medical professionals might find that, to maintain health regulations, they have to ask more in-depth questions of visitors or broaden the window of the questions from 14 days to 21 days. Other businesses might need to ask for a purpose of the visit, depending on the variety of visitors they get.
Here are some questions to ask when pre-screening your visitors:
- Who/What department are you visiting?
- What’s your anticipated length of stay?
- Have you travelled internationally or domestically in the last 14 days?
- Have you had contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
- Have you recently experienced cold or flu-like symptoms?
It’s up to your company to determine what happens if a visitor answers negatively to one of these questions. Whatever the decision, make sure it supports the overall health and safety of your entire team. When paired with temperature checks and capacity management, pre-screening through a visitor management system can provide robust support to your organization’s health and safety.
