Keeping COVID-19 at a Distance
Are temperature checks using a no-touch infrared forehead thermometer one of the best ways to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus? Yes, say a growing number of businesses desperate to remain open or reopen amid the pandemic and keep their customers safe. Although body temperature checks may not be all that useful in detecting all persons who are sick, some health experts say, a non-contact digital thermometer can identify individuals who may be symptomatic. An infrared thermometer can also be a valuable addition to a home first-aid kit for general use, too. Pay attention when shopping: Some infrared thermometers must be placed directly against the forehead or in the ear canal in order to take a reading, meaning they should be disinfected between uses.
