    Just curious. Why now that Missouri is having an uptick in corona virus cases and setting new daily records and Livingston County has had several new cases recently, why would the hospital stop checking temperatures and asking health and contact questions as you enter the facility? I nurse told me it was because it was decided that patients temperatures were checked when they get to the exam room. But that doesn’t prevent exposure to staff and other patients or visitors along the way. Also if someone has to accompany the patient, their temperature isn’t checked in exam room. Seems like a funny time to be dropping the ball.
