Tuesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Tuesday’s business headlines.

Returning to work

Those who’ve begun returning to the office report many companies have stepped up cleaning protocols but some aren’t bothering to screen employees for COVID-19 symptoms.

A Gallup poll found 41% said their employers consistently screen workers for cough or fever and 39% said their employers never conduct symptom checks.

Almost half are worried about their exposure at work.

Just 25% strongly agree that they can return to work safely.

Apple

Apple Watch has a new feature to help combat COVID-19, sensing that a person wearing the watch is watching their hands and then ensuring they keep washing for the recommended 20 seconds.

During the washing, he added, the watch will count down 20 seconds and offer coaching to encourage thoroughness and then light up with a “well done” message at the end.

Fortnite

Fortnite, one of the world’s most popular games, has reportedly removed police cars in its latest seasons as protests against police brutality have erupted across the United States.

Police cars in earlier versions of the game were for decorative purposes and couldn’t be driven by players, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Epic Games regularly releases new Fortnite seasons to keep players engaged.

FDA, CDC

The FDA and the CDC are investigating an outbreak of Cyclospora infections linked to salads at Aldi, Hy-Vee and Jewel-Osco in six states.

So far, it’s limited to Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri and Nebarska.

Sixteen people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported in connection with the outbreak.
