Walmart’s COVID-19 Response Will Help Millions
Healthcare providers around the world have begun offering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to the communities they serve. Some DeltaTrak customers actually started preparing a year ago to participate in the COVID-19 vaccine distribution. One of those customers is Walmart. According to Lisa Smith, Senior Director of Health & Wellness for Walmart, when their clinical team realized how quickly the COVID-19 virus was heading to the United States, they sprang into action,
In October 2020, the American Dental Association passed a resolution (91H-2020) which states that dentists have the “knowledge and skills to administer critical vaccinations that prevent life- or health-threatening conditions”. ADA president, Daniel J. Klemmedson believes, and dentists agree, that enlisting these professionals greatly increases the rate of COVID-19 vaccinations. Governor Gavin Newsom gave the okay for dentists in California to distribute the vaccine, in response to the low rate of inoculations there.
The closing of businesses because of the COVID-19 shutdown has been devastating to the economy and to citizens who now have no means of providing for their families. For those business owners with enough money to stay afloat, this time has been an opportunity to re-tool, re-focus and determine how best to proceed in this new environment. Another group of businesses, meat and poultry processors, for example, hasn’t had down time because they have continued operating. Some have even experienced massive increases in the demand for their products.

In a matter of months, the Coronavirus has dealt a major blow to the United States, and we may never be the same. Major institutions are at the point of unravelling. School and university administrators all over the country are debating whether to open their campuses to students in the fall. Sports matches are currently being played in arenas without fans, if at all. Jobless claims have continued to rise. To make matters worse, just when the shelter-in-place orders were lifted and we thought (hoped) the country was on the mend, an attempt to re-open was met with a second wave of virus cases.
Keeping your customers and employees healthy is no small matter. As you re-open and re-staff, it is often necessary to check temperatures of those entering the facility. But, how can you do this efficiently and quickly especially when you have large numbers of people entering? Now, it is possible to auto temperature check individuals entering your facility for fever symptoms.
A high-quality, effective tool at your temperature checking station will help you to quickly identify anyone who has a fever.
One of the activities that has changed the most since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic is work. Most of the country was forced indoors when the shelter-in-place was enacted, resulting in many people either losing their jobs or creating home offices. After several months, businesses are re-opening and implementing policies and procedures to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 among their employees and customers. The CDC recommends the use of respiratory protection and face coverings as infection control devices. There are several types of respiratory protection/face coverings available, with varying levels of effectiveness.
