The United Kingdom is installing temperature-detecting cameras at London’s Heathrow airport as part of a major program to screen passengers for COVID-19. These new measures are likely to become common in airports worldwide. Post-pandemic routine for travelers will also include ultraviolet light to sterilize security trays and contact-free security screening equipment to reduce person-to-person contact. Whether these measures are going to lengthen journeys is not known but likely.
