Self-Service Thermometers Launch Systemwide

For Everyone

This week, as an extra safety precaution due to COVID-19,
HM began to roll-out automated temperature-taking devices
known as Care.ai™. Pictured to the right, they look like a
small iPad, and are intended for both visitors and employees.

To use the device, step up to it, look at the screen and a sensor measures your temperature without human contact. The device works with facemasks and displays a green light
if you can proceed. It shows a red light if you have a temperature over 99.6F. In this case, you’ll need to follow instructions from HM testing staff.

Note: The device stands are not adjustable, so those who can’t physically reach the device will use handheld thermometers.
