In the coming weeks, hands-free temperature kiosks will be installed in Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation tribal government buildings to assist with ongoing Coronavirus screening protocols. Anyone that receives a temperature reading above 100.4 degrees should not enter the building.
Upon entry to a tribal building, all guests are asked to use hand sanitizer and to wear a mask. The temperature kiosks will not read a temperature without a mask being in place.
Guests should face the temperature kiosk for their reading. Guests may need to move closer or further from the kiosk and adjust their height for their forehead to fit within the face frame. The blue dot should remain on the forehead area and it will take 2 to 3 seconds to complete the scan.
PBPN Employees will scan their employee badge prior to having their temperature read. All other guests will have their temperature read and then proceed with completing the log sheet. The device only reads temperatures, it does not collect facial images.
All guests need to review the COVID-19 symptoms checklist prior to entry.
Below, PBPN Education Director Stephanie Jim models how to use the new device.
