MINNEAPOLIS & ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As states reopen work and public places, a Twin Cities-based company is helping to ensure healthy environments with its sophisticated thermal-imaging systems and HIPAA- and CDC-protocols guided by Boston Scientific. VenueScreen * recently passed a major milestone by screening more than 350,000 people, and by signing professional sports organizations, companies, schools and others needing a proven COVID-19 detection process.
Those organizations are using VenueScreen for screening employees and staff and include the PGA-affiliated Pro Links Sports, the Minnesota Timberwolves and others around the country, plus prominent manufacturing companies like Cambria, Polaris and others. A Wisconsin High School recently utilized VenueScreen for a rare, live 2020 commencement event with more than 300 attending.
“After screening 350,000 people -- and in some cases detecting elevated temperatures -- VenueScreen’s comprehensive solution is taking the fear and anxiety out of returning to work and recreation by minimizing threats,” explains Zarir Erani, VenueScreen President and the former CEO of the leisure travel carrier, Sun Country Airlines. “We are making a difference currently in the public health equation, but also in future proofing environments for the forecasted flu and COVID-19 outbreaks later this fall. Our success stories to date are driving increased demand in a marketplace suddenly flooded with questionable promises and products that have proven unreliable or are blacklisted by the U.S. government.”
“VenueScreen’s technology works! It is actively helping people get back to work and play and that includes playing golf for pros and amateurs alike,” notes PGA Tour Champion Tom Lehman. “If you are ready to start the process of re-opening your company, your golf course or your major sporting event or concert, VenueScreen is your answer!”
“This product is so simple, it’s a plug and play technology that will make your clubhouse or your tournament safer,” adds Hollis Cavner, CEO of Pro Links Sports that currently runs eight PGA tournaments.
“A real high school graduation was a rare thing to see anywhere in the country this spring during the COVID-19 crisis. But thanks to the VenueScreen expertise and their team that helped give our Waterford Wisconsin graduates a proper send-off, we were able to provide our community with a celebration and safety,” noted Superintendent Luke Francois of Waterford Union High School in Waterford, Wisconsin.
