Whiteley’s – in Mirfield, West Yorkshire – has invested in market-leading face-covering detection technology to protect its employees and customers following the Government’s announcement of increased restrictions on face coverings in shops – with customers facing increased fines if they do not comply.
Upon arrival, Whiteley’s customers are greeted by an interactive screen displaying customised messages depending on whether they are wearing a face covering or not.
The screen is connected to a camera system at the entrance that is taught to identify whether a person in a specific area is wearing a cover over their mouth and nose.
