I don't think temperature checks do much in the battle against COVID, to be honest, and that's why airlines have not implemented such a procedure. Imagine the cost of trying to implement temperature checks in airports across the US. It's not worth the hassle.

@jksobonya In hindsight, I'm with you.  Maybe it's a mental thing, and it just gives you a better sense of security.  But it wouldn't have a way to distinguish between the fever and COVID.  Have a happy holiday.

Temperature checks instituted as part of security screening would likely have cost more than their value as a covid screening tool, primarily since the screening would miss asymptomatic carriers.
