Screening skin temperature with advanced technology accurately and quickly is highly important for public health and safety. It is especially needed during times of crisis or a pandemic like COVID-19. Just as we can not rely on only a mask or social distancing. We can't solely rely on infrared technology as a stand-alone way to fever screen. But this technology is crucial and an essential layer, as it allows non-contact, non-invasive, quick, and efficient temperature screens. Infrared temperature scanners and other thermal imaging systems are critical to maintain safe work environments and public spaces by identifying individuals with elevated skin temperatures.

Is your fever screening decision is the right one?
