COVID-19 Response Plan
The Brazos Valley Poultry Club wants us all to be safe at our upcoming show. With all the concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, we are putting in place the same process used every day at the White House. We will have a Thermal Imaging Platform at the entrance of the show. This system will read your core body temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate, and oxygen level, all from a facial recognition software (approved by the FDA). It performs this activity in less than twenty seconds and determines if you have possible symptoms or indicators for the A/B Influenza or COVID-19.
If the system detects any abnormality, it will give us an instant notification to conduct a secondary test. You will have the option to have that test done at that moment. We will be using the ID-Now from Abbott. This is a molecular test and will give us a positive or negative result within a few minutes. Please keep in mind these steps are only to help us determine anyone is asymptomatic and not intended for anyone who is already showing signs of the flu or COVID-19. We ask that you stay home if you are showing any of those signs.
Our goal is to have a wonderful and safe show. We encourage you to be mindful of everyone at the show and maintain the social distancing that we have all become accustomed to. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the show, and there will be a few of us walking around to "enforce" social distancing.
