The ECO (Early Childhood Office) in CT changed its guidance last weekend indicating that temperature checks for kids are basically worthless.

I was first alerted to it by my kids' camp - they started taking temps on day 1 (6/25) then sent an email out that night indicating that the guidance had changed. Funny enough, then a bunch of parents complained and they re-instituted the checks EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE WORTHLESS. REPEAT - a bunch of parents wanted the temperature checks reinstated because it gave them warm fuzzies, not because they actually worked.

CT ECO [ctoec.org] (that sets policy for things like daycares and camps)
The health screening procedures have been updated so that temperature screenings are no longer required, as seen on page(s) 5, 11 and 22. (Updated 6/24/20)
◆ The Commissioner of the Office of Early Childhood, in consultation with the Department of Public Health, has determined that temperature screenings will no longer be required for children and staff. While these were considered an important step over the past three months, new guidance about their value, weighed against the challenges this creates (distancing as individuals line up, staff member who has contact with every child, staffng costs) has led to the dropping of this element of health screening as a spread prevention tool. Programs should work with staff and families to ask for their cooperation in staying out of care settings when exhibiting any symptoms of illness. Health screening remains an important tool for managing the spread of illness.

Face it - if the temperature checks had any merit, they would still be in place. Don't forget the government is extremely conservative, so the fact they came out and changed their policy should tell you something.
