Dear KGI Faculty, Staff, and Students:
Amid the current surge of coronavirus cases, KGI’s COVID-19 Task Force has been reviewing all of the recently released guidelines pertaining to COVID-19. We wish to inform the KGI community that KGI continues to operate within the bounds set by LA County’s Department of Public Health. While KGI remains compliant, we urge all members of the community to take extra care during this surge. Face coverings, hand washing, avoiding non-essential travel and contact with people outside of your immediate household are fundamental precautions that will maximize everyone’s chances of remaining safe and healthy.
KGI has recently updated its COVID-19 Communications Policy. Please note these important items from the policy:
Beginning this week, we will be installing touchless thermal scanners in the lobbies of the 517 Watson and 535 Watson buildings. The thermal scanners work easily and quickly:
Here’s a video showing it in action at an Inspira Health Care facility.
The sticker is good for the day. You do not need to scan again until the next calendar date.
Should you register a temperature above 100.4 degrees F, a message will display advising you not to enter the building and a notice will be emailed to Human Resources.
(Please note, we will not have the thermal scanners at the 215 York or 1NIH buildings. Instead, those buildings will have a QR code to scan and that will take you to a questionnaire. If you have already been scanned at either the 517 or 535 building, you do not need to fill out the questionnaire.)
