COVID-19 (coronavirus) has wreaked havoc globally since December 2019. As of May 19th, 2020, the number of global infections due to this pandemic sits at 4 731 4548 cases, with 316 169 reported deaths. Due to the highly infectious nature of this disease, social and physical distancing has become a part of our daily lives and many businesses are closed or operating very differently. In some cases, employees are working from home where possible, but some businesses have closed altogether.

However, in order to sustain the country and economy, businesses must begin to operate again. While this is true, it cannot be business as usual. Measures must be put in place to ensure the safety of both customers and employees. Fever is one of the symptoms of the disease and has prompted the use of temperature sensing equipment to monitor traffic coming into public places.

Visitor and Employee Temperature Sensing Technology May Help Your Customers, Visitors and Employees Feel Safer in the Post-Pandemic Era

With fever being one of the symptoms commonly experienced by people infected with COVID-19, human temperature screening can play a role in detecting those who may potentially be infected. This technique has been used in public places in various countries across the world. Businesses should also consider using temperature screening technologies. Using a visitor temperature sensing device can alert businesses to potentially infected persons entering their businesses.

People with elevated temperatures should be turned away and instructed to seek medical attention. This should not be done in a harsh way and is not meant to discriminate against customers. The fact remains that COVID-19 is highly infectious. Human temperature screening can be one method, among others, that can help to pre-screen people. This can help to reduce the rate of infection by helping to identify people who may need to quarantine themselves. By using visitor temperature screening, not only will businesses and their visitors feel safer, but this measure could also help to curb the spread of the virus. Whatever device that is used to screen visitor temperatures should also act as an employee temperature checking device to ensure that they are healthy while doing their jobs. It is important to screen everyone, and this can be achieved with the right employee (visitor) temperature sensing device.


An Effective Temperature Sensor Solution

Since we must ensure that both visitors and employees are protected, it is important to employ effective temperature sensor solutions at businesses. Visitor temperature sensing devices are one such solution. An effective product that is available on the market is the TAURI temperature-check tablet. TAURI temperature-check tablets have several features that help to streamline the process of temperature screening in your business. The tablets sound an audible alarm that alerts when it detects that someone’s temperature is running high and it doesn’t need to be touched in order to operate. It’s suitable for several different types of businesses and locations. Whether it is used in places such as offices, schools, restaurants, retail stores, or salons, it will help protect both employees and customers regardless.

Some other notable features of the TAURI temperature check tablet are that it has an accuracy of +/- 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (+/-0.3 degrees Celsius). It can also scan a person standing as far as 1.5 meters away from the sensor. Moreover, it can provide a temperature reading in just 1 second. You should note, however, that the scanner can only scan one person at a time. This means that businesses should modify their entrances to ensure that this is taken into consideration. The sensor should have enough time to scan each person entering a business and the entrance should be set up so that every person entering is scanned.

Final Thoughts

Protecting businesses and their customers from COVID-19 will require a multi-faceted strategy. In addition to various hygiene protocols, temperature screening is another effective means of ensuring the safety of everyone. Using a temperature sensor such as the TAURI temperature-check tablet can assist businesses in carrying out their due diligence as it relates to temperature screening.  If you are interested in a demo of this device, please contact us today.
