Are they available in wristband form? And if so, who makes them?

I am unaware of any wristbands or other RFID tags that could take a person's temperature and transmit that data to an RFID reader. If anyone has information about such a tag, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.

As I follow up to this post, I received an email from Stéphane Callo, director of RFID sensors for ASYGN. Stéphane writes:
"Following the question from Michael Durham earlier today, I’m happy to tell you that human body temperature sensors tags / wristbands could be available within a few weeks only: one of the key challenge is to be able to combine both:
- A reliable, human body temperature sensor
- A UHF RFID chip fully compatible with RAIN RFID for an easy integration
ASYGN’s new AS321X battery-free, passive UHF RFID chip embeds a temperature sensor and the analog input for an additional biometric sensor ! Making “RFID Tags Able to Sense Human Body Temperatures” is now possible."
They can't come too soon.
Another followup. David Steidinger of Tamarack Products sent me a link to a video about a patch that takes your temperature on an ongoing basis and sends the information to a smartphone app. There isn't a lot of detail about the technology used (probably Bluetooth), but it's interesting. Here's the link: https://www.mbtmag.com/home/video/21134907/temperature-monitoring-patch-may-be-coming-to-your-job?lt.usr=2557989&utm_source=MBT-+Manufacturing+Business+Tech_05262020&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=101022&utm_term=553334.
