By Joan Honig – Contact tracing is a valuable tool for containing the spread of COVID-19 so the economy can reopen safely. There’s an urgent need for a flexible, secure way to screen employees and determine the health status of any person entering an office or business. Requirements vary by state but ultimately it’s each business’s responsibility to provide a safe workplace.
At DocuWare, we feel this obligation as keenly as our customers do. Our preparation for reopening DocuWare’s US headquarters in New Windsor, New York on July 6 included a thorough review of and strict adherence to state and Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. As a company that helps customers with regulatory compliance, we were particularly aware of how important it is to follow the rules. As a result, we developed the COVID-19 screening form – it’s an eform with accompanying workflow that makes mandatory daily health screening easier. Now every employee who plans to work at the office completes a daily COVID-19 questionnaire, in addition to wearing a mask, using hand sanitizer and maintaining social distance.
