Virgin Voyages announced it had selected DeCurtis Shield as a core component in the line's “Voyage Well” program.
Virgin's “Voyage Well” plan sets forth to increase passenger and crew safety in light of not just the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but also as a set of evolutions to increase the health and safety of the crew and passengers moving forward.
DeCurtis Shield has been chosen as the primary edge mitigation layer. Integrating the edge checkpoints into a robust and holistic infrastructure enables evolution as new threats surface.
Security, safety, and health have always been vital components of DeCurtis Corporation’s mission, but are also the primary focus in the current environment of the cruise industry. DeCurtis Shield is focused on improving indoor environments to implement health screenings at secure entries and exit points. The result is a fast and accurate temperature reading. The technology is not just an answer to the novelty virus, but a critical part of a strategy to lessen onboard outbreaks.
At entry and exit points, shield kiosks are used to seamlessly screen for body temperature, integrate health questionnaires, and other screening actions like mask detection.
To be a foundational element; quickly deployed and part of larger, holistic security, safety, and health infrastructure makes DeCurtis Shield unique. The duality allows it to assist with both the immediate threat and be a strategic defense against future, unidentified risks.
