Your efforts to help mimimize the spread of COVID-19 and other infections will be much more successful if you're able to identify those who are symptomatic. This can include employees self-screening in addition to on-site screening of visitors. It's important to also remember that according to the CDC, people who are infected but do not have symptoms probably also play a role in the spread of COVID-19, which is why source control measures should be implemented for everyone in the facility, regardless of symptoms.
It's likely that your facility has already established pre-screening protocols. To find out what some other ATs are doing to pre-screen athletes and visitors to their facilities, watch the video below.
