Local businesses to be supplied with free thermometers

Media Release Issued:
Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Wellington Shire Council has begun delivering contactless infrared thermometers free to businesses across the shire, to help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to social distancing and hand hygiene, contactless thermometers serve as a key measure that can be taken at businesses to stop the spread of the virus.

The thermometers allow a check for fever to be carried out from a safe distance and can be used to conduct daily temperature checks on employees.  

They are available to businesses that employ at least five staff members onsite who work at the same time and place, and that have not been able to procure a contactless thermometer from suppliers.

There is a limitation of one thermometer per business site per 20 employees. So, for example, if a business employs more than 20 people at one site, it is eligible to receive an additional thermometer.  

Business with multiple premises can request a thermometer for each location.  

Businesses can check their eligibility for a free contactless infrared thermometer by calling Wellington Shire’s COVID-19 Relief Information Line on 1300 137 218.
