Infrared thermometers instantly display body temperature
Temperature checks have become a part of screening for symptoms of COVID-19. This screening can happen at home or prior to entering a building. Self-checks at home can be done with any type of thermometer, but those taken before entering a place of business or school is typically done by another person. To help minimize contact, an infrared thermometer can be used where no physical contact needs to happen in order to obtain a temperature reading. By holding the thermometer one to two inches from a person's forehead a temperature can be obtained on a LCD display in one second. There is no need to sanitize between uses which can create a bottleneck when many people need to be tested.
