Providence and Asante say they’re both screening visitors and staff for coronavirus.
Right now, Providence says it’s screening for coronavirus symptoms in caregivers and visitors with a question and answer system.
But very soon, it will also be screening everyone for a fever with no-touch thermometers.
We’re told this will apply to anyone entering the hospital area.
Asante says it has no plans to use no-touch thermometers anytime soon.
