Lexington County has limited free infrared thermometers for area businesses

Lexington County, SC - As efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 continue, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has allocated a specific number of Non-contact Infrared Thermometers (NCIT) to each state for private-sector use. The South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) is providing NCITs to each County Economic Development office on a per capita basis. Per FEMA guidance, these thermometers are for private-sector businesses with a high degree of person-to-person interaction.

A portion of the NCITs have been delivered this week and will be available on a first-come first-served basis.

If you are interested in receiving one or more of these units, please email edinfo@lex-co.com by noon on Monday, June 8.

Information required to be within your response is found below:

  • Name of Company

  • Facility Manager/Owner Contact Name and Contact Info (title, email address, phone number, physical address)

  • Human Resources Contact Name and Contact Info (title, email address, phone number, physical address)

  • Number of employees at the facility

  • Number of NCIT units requested

This is not intended to supply 100 percent of your business needs, and not more than 1 NCIT per 75 employees will be distributed to any company. Response to this email does not guarantee an allocation of thermometers. Workplaces with unmet needs may need to pursue, independent of the federal government, the acquisition of additional thermometers. The goal of this initiative is to recognize the critical role the private-sector plays in disease control and mitigation.

If you have any questions or specific needs, please do not hesitate to reach out to the County of Lexington Department of Economic Development.
