What to know about employee health screening:

 

This screening consists of two parts prior to starting your shift:

  • You can use the BC self-assessment tool at https://bc.thrive.health/
  • Call 811 for further guidance
  • Call your supervisor to let them know and enter a case in Direct Connect

 

  1. A daily, on-site symptom screening with temperature check
  • There are multiple locations for screening and each location has certain operating times. Talk to your supervisor to confirm where to go
  • Wear your face covering – if you don’t have one, we have you covered
  • You will need your employee ID
