COVID-19 Non-Thermal Health Screening Kiosk
Reopening during the COVID-19 ‘new normal’ brings a unique set of challenges for employers, starting with how to keep your employees and visitors safe.
The Center for Disease Control’s current guidelines recommend that employers should offer daily health screening checks before allowing entry into a facility.
Kiosk Group’s CheckPoint Kiosk allows you to easily screen employees and visitors with a simple set of health screening questions. After screening, a date-stamped badge is printed for easy identification within your facility.
This solution reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission in your facility while protecting individuals’ privacy.

How it Works
1 Quick Screening
Screening consists of a short series of questions based on CDC guidelines for eligibility to work, including questions about fever, symptoms, and possible exposure.
2 Print Badge
Anyone determined to be at low-risk for COVID-19 based on their responses receives a printed badge which must be worn at all times while in the facility. The badge includes the date & time in clear, large text that can be easily seen while maintaining adequate social distancing.
3 Next-Step Instructions
Anyone in a high-risk group is asked to leave the facility immediately and receives a printed set of instructions on what to do next.
Interact via Voice or Touch
The kiosk interface can be voice-activated for touchless interaction, reducing touchpoints that could potentially transmit the virus.
The interface also supports touch for those who are unable to interact by voice or just prefer touch. A hand sanitizer pump is attached to help maintain a clean environment.
Easy Set-Up & Maintenance
Software for CheckPoint Kiosk comes pre-installed. For on-site setup, your team will need to simply attach the base and graphic system to the kiosk and connect the tablet to power and WiFi.
Based on our popular Roo tablet printer kiosk, a design that’s been field-tested and approved, our screening kiosk includes a front hinge for easy access to the printer to refill labels.
Star Micronics’ printers are well known for their reliability and performance. The TSP743 model used in CheckPoint Kiosk connects via Bluetooth and has a print capacity of 900 labels per roll, reducing the need for frequent paper changes.
Streamlines Manual Temperature Monitoring
While there have been a number of ‘thermal monitoring’ kiosks released since the start of the pandemic, only the most expensive have the resolution and black body reference required to comply with FDA guidelines. These high-end solutions require major infrastructure investment and often require on-site staff to run.
Lower-cost units imported from Asia average temperatures from larger areas of the face and are often unable to accurately gauge temperature for individuals coming from warmer or colder outdoor environments.
In comparison, non-contact infrared temperature guns, which are seen frequently in medical settings, are inexpensive and accurate.
If your facility needs or wants to offer additional temperature screening, CheckPoint Kiosk can make sure that only individuals who have passed health screening are allowed to move on to a staffed station for non-contact infrared temperature screening. If temperature screening is passed, a colored stamp is applied to the badge, certifying it for use in the facility.
By handling the initial health screening as a separate socially-distanced step in the process, CheckPoint Kiosk limits the amount of time required in close proximity for a simple temperature check. This reduces any potential chance for exposure for both the person being screened and the staff member completing the screening.
US employment law tightly regulates how health data of employees is stored and managed. While emergency exceptions have been carved out during the current Coronavirus pandemic, these exceptions are not clearly defined and can expose a business to significant liability.
Designed around the idea of privacy first, our screening kiosk does not store any identifying data about those who have been screened. By providing physical proof that a visitor or employee has undergone screening, this solution avoids the privacy and security issues that affect many traditional check-in solutions.
