Walmart will begin taking temperature of every employee prior to their shifts in the hopes of preventing the spread of coronavirus, the company announced on Monday.

According to a press release, Walmart is in the process of sending digital thermometers to all of its store locations, which could take up to three weeks.

Those who have fevers of over 100 will be paid for the day and sent home. Any employees with a fever have been asked not to return to work until they go three straight days without a fever of over 100.

Walmart will also supply gloves and masks to employees who want them while supplies last.

The company is encouraging employees to stay six feet away from others while working and wash their hands frequently with soap for 20 seconds.
