COVID-19 Screening Toolkit for Employers

Employer Screening Tool

Administering and reviewing a set of screening questions for each employee before clearing them to enter the work site can be slow and cumbersome and create bottlenecks at the start of the work day.

It also creates the potential of having ill or COVID-19 exposed employees report to work to fill out the questionnaire only to be turned away and potentially needlessly exposing their co-workers in the process.

Sparrow has created the following screening tool to help you check for COVID-19 symptoms as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control. Our aim is to help you keep essential and critical infrastructure staff safe and on the job during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Subject: Daily COVID-19 Screening for Employees

    To keep you and all our employees safe, we are following local health department recommendations and requiring that every employee be assessed for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors each day before entering our facility.

    The survey must be completed prior to your shift and is available four hours before your start time. You will be expected to show proof of a green check, which you will receive at the end of the survey, at point of entry. The easiest way is to take the screening test on your mobile phone and save a screenshot.

    Regardless of survey results, if you feel that you have symptoms related to COVID-19 please contact a healthcare professional.

    The survey below should be completed on all days you are scheduled to work in our facilities.
