EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) – A YMCA in Edmond is testing a new thermal camera system in an effort to make temperature screening faster and easier on members.

The camera, called “Wall-E,” is being used at Mitch Park YMCA and will be able to read individuals’ temperatures using thermal technology.

Officials with YMCA say there are a few things members should keep in mind while they are testing the new system.

  • If the camera is unable to pick up your temperature, staff will take a manual reading.
  • If the camera indicates a high temperature, staff will take a manual reading to ensure accuracy.
  • If the camera and a manual reading indicate a temperature, staff will ask you to leave the facility.
