Albertsons Cos. Implements Contactless COVID Health Screenings

Albertsons third

Albertsons Cos. is implementing a contactless temperature check and health screening solution for associates and vendors. The new technology, now being deployed across all Albertsons Cos. locations, enables a safer and more reliable health screening process for those who work in their stores and facilities. 

After extensive testing and process refinements, the selected technology – provided by Turing Video Inc. – leverages a built-in touchless body temperature scanner and a digital COVID-19 health questionnaire. The new screening solution can help to avoid potential exposure for health screeners while ensuring effective temperature screening for all associates. The enhanced process will be implemented across all markets regardless of their COVID-19 risk state, enabling Albertsons Cos. to adhere to the latest CDC recommendations and regional mandates pertaining to health screenings.

Upon successful completion of the temperature screening and validation of the heath questionnaire, visible stickers are printed with “CLEAR” and the associate’s photo, which can then be worn by those screened who are not in food production areas. For those in food production positions, the stickers will be logged in the department.

“The health and safety of associates working in our facilities is a top priority, and the enhanced health screening process provides us with peace of mind while promoting a healthy workplace” said Susan Morris, chief operations officer for Albertsons Cos. “After testing multiple options, we are grateful for the support and partnership of Turing Video to deliver an effective, scalable solution.” 

“Turing Video is excited to team up with Albertsons in this partnership,” said Jerry Zhong, co-founder and president of Turing Video. “A quick, easy, contactless and effective health screen is a key to containing the spread of COVID-19, and Albertsons Companies quickly recognized the value in implementing this system.”

Albertsons Cos. is based in Boise, Idaho and operates across 34 states and the District of Columbia.
