Fever Screening in Public Places

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has faced businesses and organisations across all sectors with new and unfamiliar challenges. Fighting the virus and preserving life demands social distancing from each and every one of us – as well as fresh and stringent approaches to hygiene, sanitation and infection control. However, few solutions allow facilities to actively monitor their visitors for established signs of infection. In this regard, fever screening systems have an important role to play in how we use our public spaces.

Understanding the benefits of fever screening in public places requires an understanding of the symptoms of coronavirus:

  • A loss of smell and/or taste;
  • A new, persistent cough; and
  • A high temperature.

Our understanding of Covid-19 continues to change on a daily basis, with many elements of the virus remaining mysterious to scientists and researchers. However, early evidence has found the above symptoms to be fairly typical of infected patients (outside the realm of asymptomatic cases, which have been found to form a significant proportion of cases). 

This means that being vigilant of the above symptoms can help businesses and organisations protect their staff and visitors, allowing them to take precautionary and preemptive steps in these challenging times. And, whilst a raised temperature is only one way of determining if a person may be infected with Covid-19, fever screening can be combined with social distancing and hygiene infrastructure to offer greater peace of mind around working environments, as well as schools and a variety of public spaces.
