The coronavirus has dramatically changed the way we live. At least for now, many businesses and schools have turned to online meetings and instruction. Sporting and music events have been cancelled altogether. Yet, inevitably, sometimes people will have to meet face-to-face or “mask-to-mask.”
What can you do to ensure that you minimize risk and keep the virus from spreading? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that businesses consider daily screening of employees— including taking temperatures with a touchless thermometer, when available. High temperature has been shown to be one of the most common symptoms of coronavirus. Checking people at the door can not only protect those inside but also alert the person entering that he has a fever.
The new FDA and CE approved 15007 Non-Contact Forehead Infrared Thermometer provides instant temperature readings without necessary contact—thereby making it an ideal COVID-19 risk prevention tool.
Users can select for temperature readings to be displayed in either °F or °C. The unit may also be set for either body or surface temperature readings. Other features include a clear backlit LCD display, alarm settings, automatic power off, and display resolution to 0.1F/C.
In today’s environment, using FDA-approved screening tools like the non-contact forehead thermometer can provide a significant step in reducing the risk of spreading the infection.
