A face mask is a layer that you put on your face, for example, to prevent bad breath or the spread of germs or to protect your face in dangerous situations. COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets from one person to another while breathing.
Masks are simple shields that prevent your respiratory droplets from entering. Studies show that masks minimize the droplets of spray that can pass through the mouth and nose.
Who should wear the mask?
In public places, everyone over the age of two must wear a mask. Every American should choose to wear a face mask when outdoors or when traveling. If you have or suspect you have COVID-19, wear a mask, including at home when you have other people.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) agrees that there may be situations when wearing a mask is not an option. If so, consider modifications and alternatives.
In addition to wearing a mask, you are also required to use disinfectant when leaving the house. Your hands come into contact with germs, mouth, eyes, nose, and several other body parts. We hope you wash your hands with soap and water several times a day. Another important item besides soap is hand sanitizer.
Non-contact thermometers have become a key component of infection control plans for many companies. But a lack of knowledge on how to properly use a laser pointer infrared thermometer can cause you to misread the temperature and throw your efforts in vain.
Make sure the battery is plugged in or the device is charging.
The device may take some time to warm up and adjust to room temperature when turned on. The Bedroom non-contact thermometer takes 10-15 minutes to “warm-up” when you insert the battery for the first time or if you don’t use it for a long time.
Each thermometer will likely have slightly different instructions on which button to press when preparing to take a temperature reading. Depending on the product you are using, your thermometer may have different settings. Make sure the body temperature is regulated properly.
Precautions must be taken to ensure accurate reporting. Variables such as lens misalignment and environmental factors such as other objects and reflective surfaces can affect measurement accuracy. Learn more about accurate temperature measurement in our blog post How Accurate is a Thermometer.
