LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and with flu season here, the Regional Transportation Commission says it hopes to to mitigate the spread with new technology.

Here's how it works:

When a person enters the facility, they step in front of a thermal camera that scans their face.

The person's temperature is displayed within two seconds.

If their temperature is above normal they will go to a secondary inspection for more testing and potential quarantine.

If it is normal, they are allowed to continue.
