I wonder if that's just a "feel good" measure? Lots of people with the wuflu never have a fever.

They have one, it's $250. I'm considering getting one for work. Cheaper than buying n95 masks.

How long till "fear of COVID" will get you on SSI disability?


N95 masks right now are about $5/ea. I have to wear them for work...Wearing a new one every day....the dang thing would pay for itself within 6 weeks. Also, my work is switching our HVAC so that now there is no recirculation of air, it's all fresh air from outside...great, except I'm allergic to certain grasses and they mow our lawn every 4 days.... I'd prefer not to sneeze all over my clients, so I'll be purchasing an air purifier for my office as well. This thing is the same price as the air purifier alone that would work for that and $350 cheaper than the one that filters particles 1 micron...So, again....$250 for this weird contraption is a heck of a lot cheaper in the long run...


You work does not cover PPE?

Not N95 masks, not yet. There are only about 10 of us on campus that are in close proximity to people for our jobs and actually need those. I believe actually getting them is the issue. I've been able to get some through my professional association. $71 for 15 masks.

Thanks for the link.

We're having to do the temperature thing too when we return. Then, the state requires I take the temperature of my client before they are allowed in my office...which makes no sense because they'll be checked at the door as they enter the building, but yeah...

We check employee and vendor temps as well. Fairly common now.

My plant has over 12,000 employees (although many, like me, have been working from home since March) and they check temps at the door. More than just a "feel good" measure, while it may not catch all with COVID, it does catch those who have a fever. Fever being one of the most readily identifiable symptoms.

It’s an easy check no doubt. But, per the CDC, 80% of infected show little to no symptoms. My mother just informed me last week she’s had it and it took a long time to get over it. So now my mother and daughter both have had it, neither of them had a fever.

I wear one where it's required and then try not to go back there.
