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.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
