(AmericanProsperity.com) – Cities and counties are constantly grappling with the best ways to keep COVID-19 from spreading in their communities. However, some technology could be used to screen you without your knowledge.
Instead of a thermometer, Perdue Farms now uses an infrared camera to check employees for fever temperatures before entering its factories. These cameras read temperatures within a fraction of a degree.
Continuing to keep our associates safe & healthy is our top priority. Each associate goes through a full-screening prior to entering our facilities, including questions about possible COVID-19 exposure & a temperature check by an infrared camera, before the associate can proceed. pic.twitter.com/4XNwj6WJyZ

This technology may be adapted into heavily-populated areas like concert halls, airports, and a vast variety of other transportation, shopping, or entertainment venues. But, are citizens ready to have many of their public moves recorded?

As the country struggles to find the balance of freedom, technology, and safety, Americans must stay vigilant to keep their personal information safe and potential abuse of video footage at bay.
