Heathrow Airport to begin trial of temperature screening technology

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Heathrow is to try out temperature screening technology to monitor people moving through the airport for signs of coronavirus.

Other measures under review include UV sanitation to quickly cleanse the trays at security and procedures to reduce person-to-person contact.

The thermal screening technology is the first to be trialled and will start in the next two weeks in the immigration halls of terminal 2.

It will scan people as they move through the terminal and monitor their temperature – a fever is one of the commons symptoms of the virus.

If the trial goes well, the equipment will be rolled out to other areas such as departures and connections.
