The COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, though relief is on the horizon. The toll on businesses has been significant, but as more vaccinations are distributed and the latest series of lockdowns starts to lift, local businesses will do what they always do — they’ll rally.
As onsite services cautiously resume or continue in these initial months of 2021, it will be more important than ever to offer prospective customers a sense of safety and reassurance as they venture out.
Screening for COVID-19 symptoms is a simple measure that, while not entirely foolproof, can help reduce the risk of transmission between visitors and employees. In some cases, screening for symptoms will remain a government-mandated requirement for admittance — in others, it can serve as a liability safeguard for organizations and ensure peace of mind for customers.
The screening process, which asks whether visitors are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, doesn’t have to be tedious. In fact, it can be hassle-free and touch-free, to maintain the safety protocols many businesses have in place.
Jotform makes it easy to link a COVID-19 screening form to an automatically generated QR code. Once customers scan the code with their portable device, they’re immediately directed to the online form. This ensures a safe, contactless experience and gives customers the convenience of using their own devices to quickly scan through and fill out the requisite documentation.
