Fayetteville Schools Start Temperature Checks on Campus

From 40/29TV News

Beginning Monday for the Fayetteville School District, all students and staff members will have their temperature checked before they enter any of our school buildings.

Staff members will be at the entrances to every building on campus to perform the temperature checks with touchless thermometers. This is a change from previous policy when temperatures were to be checked at home by parents and individuals.

"Students and staff members who have an elevated temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, will be isolated and then reassessed to determine if they can remain at school or at work," according to an email from the superintendent.

According to a physician specialist with the Department of Health, a fever is one of the most common symptoms associated with COVID-19.

And while some people will be asymptomatic and may not be running a high fever, regular temperature checks are a good strategy to help curb the spread of cases inside school buildings, according to Dr. Joel Tumilson.

"We don't want sick people showing up. Someone with a fever has some kind of infection, in general. Now, that might not be COVID-19, but in this setting there's a good chance it is. We need to keep out any kids or staff members that could be sick. That way, they can seek help or guidance from a medical provider," Tumilson said.
