COVID-19 Privacy Implications: Workplace Temperature Screening

  • While preparing to reopen offices, companies are assessing various screening programs to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19.
  • If your company is using the services of a third party to screen employees (i.e., for elevated temperatures), including mobile applications developed by third parties, it is important to review these agreements and make sure that they include sufficient privacy and security provisions that address their obligations and limited use rights as it relates to the personal information being collected through the screening.
