As General Eisenhower said ‘Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” Good to see a solid plan from Ga. Tech with a comprehensive plan to keep students safe as we battle CV-19. As part of the plan, temerature screening will be deoployed.
Georgia Tech will deploy thermal image screening at strategic locations on campus that will not create bottlenecks or crowding or place people at unnecessary risk of exposure. All personnel conducting the screenings will have the appropriate training and resources.
Signs will be posted at building entrances prohibiting anyone with a fever or Covid-19 symptoms from entering. Contact-less thermometers will be supplied to all buildings as they reopen.
Georgia Tech may deploy additional methods of temperature screening, including thermal imaging and handheld infrared thermometers, at locations throughout campus.
If you are found to have an elevated temperature (over 100.4º F or 38º C), follow the appropriate steps outlined in the Covid-19 Exposure Decision Tree (https://health.gatech.edu/coronavirus/decision-tree).
