In the wake of surging COVID-19 cases following Thanksgiving and New Year gatherings, the Alabama State Senate recently adopted the Draganfly Smart Vital System and its related health safety protocols to help detect potential COVID-19 in government buildings.
“As the current pandemic continues, we are committed to provide a safe place for our staff and visitors to ensure there is no interruption in the work that needs to be done for the citizens of Alabama,” said Pat Harris, Secretary, Alabama State Senate.
“We are confident that the implementation of Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence Technology will help to ensure an important layer to existing protocols that assist us in identifying and mitigating the risk of the spread of COVID-19.”
Draganfly’s American-made Smart Vital screening system and platform will provide data to the Alabama State Senate that will enable those potentially at risk to receive an immediate COVID-19 test and will also include the number of people screened, number of elevated vital signs detected and the time it took for each screening.
Alabama State University in Montgomery has already been using Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence Smart Thermal + Vital screening and Social Distancing Awareness system across its campus, which measures real-time anonymous data, including contactless temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate readings.
Since installation, the University has also seen significant increases in adherence to social distancing protocols.
Additionally, ASU uses Draganfly’s technology, coupled with a pathogen and virus sanitiser made by Varigard, to disinfect surfaces in its athletic stadiums and arenas.
