Thermal Cameras, LAX Airport
Are people actually getting on air- planes these days? Apparently there are enough fliers, and enough interest that thermal cameras at airports are getting more than a second look.
There is something new at Los An- geles International Airport. Passengers may notice additional cameras — thermal cameras to ensure travelers don’t have a fever. The cameras are placed at the Tom Bradley International Terminal, searching passenger who might have above-average body temperatures.
The decision to install the cameras was announced by LA mayor Eric Garrett and the Los Angeles Worth Airports. Officials are hoping the cameras will help fight coro- navirus. The thermal scans are voluntary.
LAX is expected to add signs, explain- ing to passengers where they would be scanned for thermal body temperatures. Anyone testing100.4 degrees or above will be given a second test.

The Year of No Tradeshows
I did miss the ISC West event. I did not miss Las Vegas. A virtual event is planned for Oct. 5-7. Show officials pushed the event back until it was time to call for the virtual event.
Industry and market circumstances have forced trade show organizers to rethink in- person events. ISC West is following suit to many other industry events, opting for a virtual even to continue serving the security and public safety community.
