[ARCHIVED] Bloomfield Purchases Thermal Imaging Camera to Protect Residents and Township Employees

Mayor Thermal Camera1

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In an effort to keep residents and township employees safe during the COVID-19 crisis, Bloomfield has purchased a thermal imaging scanner. The scanner will be used to quickly assess a person’s temperature which will help in detecting possible COVID symptoms.

“With our township employees back to work inside our Municipal Building, we wanted to take every precaution necessary to keep them and the public safe,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “This device will allow us to quickly scan all employees as well as residents when we eventually open up to the public.”

The scanner is portable and can be used for future events that the township holds regardless of location. Township employees will be trained on using the device on Monday and it will go into use beginning Tuesday. Anyone entering the Municipal Building will go through one entrance so that everyone is scanned prior to going in.

This latest safety measure comes after the township began testing residents free of charge at various locations throughout Bloomfield. It is all part of the effort of the township to flatten the curve and keep the virus from spreading in the community.
