During the COVID-19 pandemic, the necessity to monitor body temperature without touching it and swiftly led to the adoption of infrared thermometers, thermal imaging cameras, and thermal scanners as an alternative to the existing contact clinical thermometers. However, non-contact temperature monitoring equipment are not widely used, and technical–scientific literature sometimes offers contradictory reference values for healthy people' body and skin temperatures. To reduce the possibility of the virus spreading, national authorities have mandated that workers' body temperatures be taken at the entry to the workplace. In this project, we'll look at non-contact body temperature measuring difficulties from a clinical and meteorological standpoint, as well as a security-based attendance system, with the goal of (i) increasing body temperature measurement accuracy and (ii) collecting staff attendance as they arrive at work. This project's methodology takes into account both the manual technique of temperature measuring and the manual way of recording attendance. In order to appropriately pick the threshold temperature value and measurement technique to access important areas during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency, a thorough screening process for attendance taking and body temperature measurement that considers the role of uncertainty is required.
