When a person arrives, a machine scans their face to determine their temperature. If they have a fever, they will be refused entry.
"It also will look to see if you have a mask on to protect the other people in the building while you enter,” says Director of Public Safety James Shea. “Then a green light will come on and you will get access into the building. We are the first in the nation to implement this system. It's going to cost us about $90,000. We will be reimbursing that money through the CARES Act."
