    Isn’t 99.5 still considered normal? Also especially considering there’s no A/C, it’s all outside in mid 90s weather.

    Rooster and I both need temp checks before leaving for work and on arrival to work. It’s not hard but... 99 isn’t a fever.

    if you’re asking what they SHOULD consider a fever, I am firmly in the 100.4+ group. Otherwise, STFU you're wrong. Could be environmental like you said. Most establishments that I’ve seen here are considering a fever 99+ which is nonsensical to me.

    I just thought it was weird they checked you after you were already working (in the sun). But their general policies sound screwed up. Glad you are leaving.

    I texted the GM when I got home and took my temp using my under the tongue thermometer, it was normal. Told him I’d keep an eye on it but would bring mine with me Wednesday for a double check. The surface reader did not like me for some reason.

    I’ve found that surface readers are notoriously unreliable unless you get an expensive one. The one we have in my clinic reads me at 95 most days, and my under the tongue reads at 97.6.

    He kept saying that it must be reliable and accurate because “everyone else” was testing ok. “Everyone else” was two brewers and the GM (who were not wearing masks) and the other bartender (wearing a cloth mask). I was wearing a disposable blue medical mask with the nose wire, it pushes all the hot air from my breath up through the gaps on each side to my forehead - the other bartender even said he could feel it.

    That's all sorts of dumb @Erie . I'm glad you'll be leaving them soon.

    Huh, whenever I have S check me with E's forehead thermometer, I'm typically around 99. Dr. Google just told me that humans typically run between 97 and 99.

    I wonder if they think 99 counts as a fever if they think they need to "add one" to the thermometer reading. I hate thermometers and they all give me problems. I'm not looking forward to having to temp check kids at work. Hopefully whatever we get is easy and actually reliable :/ Maybe I just suck at taking temps other than armpit and mouth tho.

    Define “expensive” and do they work reliably for babies/toddlers? Because at this point I have like 3 thermometers I hate and I’d love to get one that’s easy to use and reliable.

    My cheap CVS temporal one is fine. Or are you talking the touchiness kind?
  15. Kimmers

    Ideally touchless because the temporal one we have takes FOREVER to get a reading and it’s almost impossible to hold it still in one spot long enough with L. Also I feel like in general it’s temps are kind of all over the place.

    Braun's in ear is your best bet for a fast read. Forehead Thermometers always have issues because they vary based on the ambient air temp. I have a dual in ear / forehead and the forehead readings are terrible but the forehead readings for the air are accurate to my thermostat and the in ear are good if I don't jam it too far or aim not at the ear canal lol. The industrial ones are better but still

    Even the expensive ones have to be calibrated.

    Apparently when Lucy’s daycare had two other pups out for a walk (thank Jeff Goldblum it wasn’t Lucy) some kids ran up to them and THREW FIREWORKS AT THE DOGS!!! I fucking give up. (The police were called but of course the kids ran off.)
