Thermal imaging cameras have been installed at the Civic Center security screening entrances in downtown Evansville, Indiana.
The special cameras are able to detect heat and were installed in an attempt to stop individuals who are exhibiting a signature symptom of COVID-19, fever, from entering.
The new cameras will be active at the Civic Center beginning Wednesday, Oct. 21, automatically scanning the temperatures of individuals who enter the facility.
If the temperate of an individual who's trying to enter the building is over 100.4 degrees, an alarm will sound and Vanderburgh County Sheriff Deputies will stop them from entering.
Individuals who set off the alarm will, however, have the option to be re-checked with handheld thermometers at the Security Desk.
