To improve safety, temperature scanning is being implemented across all Community sites, including SECASA.
All employees, clients and visitors will now have their temperatures checked on entry with a Thermoscan handheld thermometer.
Anyone who records a temperature of more than 37.5 degrees will be provided with a mask and directed to the nearest screening clinic. All visitors will also have their details recorded to assist with contract tracing should it become necessary.
Tripod-mounted thermal scanners have been ordered and will be installed at Cranbourne Integrated Care Centre and 122 Thomas Street, Dandenong once they become available.
The combination of consolidation of access to sites and thermal scanning will help improve safety for us all.
