This week, Housing and Dining Services deployed wrist temperature scanners at the dining centers to give students an easy way to monitor their temperature each day. These will be set up at entrances and are required for entry into the dining centers during selected meal times.
The temperature scanners are turned on via motion recognition in front of the device and then you simply place your wrist near the reader on the right hand side. You will get an instant result of your current temperature.
If you happen to have a temperature above 100.4 degrees, you should step out of line for three minutes and then re-test your temperature. If it reads above 100.4 degrees a second time, please ask the checker to call a dining services manager to assist you, then return to your room and contact Lafene Health Center at 785-532-6544 to discuss your fever and get advice from a health professional on what you should do. You may see these same scanners at the K-State Student Union and the K-State Rec Center.
