CVMC to use thermal imaging camera for temperature screenings

BERLIN, Vt. (WCAX) Eliminating long lines and close contact, a local hospital launches a thermal imaging camera to scan for your temperature.

Since March, anyone entering the Central Vermont Medical Center has had to pass a temperature screening.

But now instead of waiting in a line for a one-on-one interaction with a hospital worker, an imaging camera will do the work automatically.

The hospital's vice president of HR says this keeps everyone safer and lets hospital workers get back to patient care.
