The most recent updates we’ve heard have to do with vaccine passports, proposed new social distancing guidelines, and mask requirements. Now, the latest health recommendation involves the use of temperature checks. 

During a recent Orange County meeting about the coronavirus, Dr. Raul Pino suggested that using temperature checks as a safety precaution is unnecessary at this time. Dr. Pino is the Director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County.

Dr. Pino said, “We will advise everyone again that temperature control checks are not necessary. Although they give some sense of safety to those who are surrounding you, it really doesn’t make any differences. And it’s a lot of resources for business[es] and other places just to have one person taking temperatures. So, again, temperature control measures are not recommended at this point.”
