Carnival Cruise Line (CCL) has partnered with Infrared Cameras (ICI) to fit thermal camera systems for passenger and crew member temperature screenings.
ICI claimed that the cameras have the highest level of accuracy — within 0.1 to 0.3 of one deg C.
The company’s three-step solution to temperature screening includes a thermal camera, blackbody and a computer. The inclusion of a blackbody temperature reference source is an US FDA recommendation to ensure accurate results.
Without all three essential elements, crew and customer safety may be compromised, CCL said.
CCL has already announced that cruises may begin operating from Galveston, Miami and Port Canaveral from 1st August.
