Thermal Imaging Systems Are Being Used to Detect Fevers in Employees
Unfortunately, as the Delta variant continues to spread, mask mandates and vaccine requirements are gaining traction. Despite the setback, more companies in Houston, TX, are requiring that their staff return to the workplace, a request that many employees, having spent almost a year working from home, are not in favor of.
To combat the hesitation, employers are offering a compromise—part-time remote and part-time office participation. This gives employees time to work as a team while appealing to their desire to skip the commute. Despite the solution, employees are pointing to the rising cases in COVID-19 and safety concerns.
Fortunately, there are steps that operators can take to help employees feel safer when working from the office. One of these procedures is fever detection or thermal imaging.
As the Pandemic Continues to Surge, All Options Should be Considered
As COVID-19 continues to surge across the U.S. to another level, organizations of all sizes are still coping with its effects. While a vaccine is clearly on the horizon, it will be months before the country gets back to normal, and that may be a new normal that incorporates some lessons learned from dealing with a deadly pandemic.
Fever detection has been a mitigation solution widely employed in workplaces and other locations to help prevent the spread of disease. While no magic bullet, it is a viable option, along with masks and social distancing, to keep potentially sick people separated from healthy ones.
We’ve written extensively on these pages about various fever detection solutions and implementation issues. Many companies have responded to the pandemic by avoiding physical contact with capacity limitations and extended work from home programs, schools have hybrid learning and distanced operations, and sports have been played with sparse audience attendance.
