Of course. The safety of all employees is their responsibility. They can be sued if they do not take appropriate precautions. You did not mention anything that they should not be doing.

Your employer can take your temperature before work
They can make you wear gloves and a mask at work.
Contact tracing... unlikely.

Some areas consider taking your temperature to be a human rights issue, also because they don't know what your normal temp is or how high it normally gets when you're working. But for your safety they can enforce policies with regards to wearing gloves and a mask if social distancing isn't possible.

Yes, it is legal for employers to do all that, as it is a condition of employment for employees

Sure. If you’re a surgeon, your employer can make you wear scrubs when you’re in the operating room to prevent infecting the patient.
If you don’t like the rules then find another job.

Yes, it is indeed legal for employers to implement safety precautions they deem appropriate and to require employees to abide by them.
