Orange County, Florida Businesses No Longer Need Temperature Checks, Deemed “Waste of Resources”
Orange County Department of Health official Dr. Raul Pino has stated that temperature checks are not necessary, Lauren Seabrook with WFTV reports.
The Department of Health is not recommending temperature checks as they waste resources on something that doesn’t necessarily prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Temperature checks have been required to enter Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, and many other businesses in the county in the past year. However, someone carrying COVID-19 will not always have a fever, and those who are found to have a fever will not always have COVID-19 (they might just be hot from the Florida sun).
