A Chinese restaurant in California is now checking the temperature of diners before they enter the premises.

Sichuan Impression, which has three locations across the state, has taken the decision as a result of the coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak.

If you have a temperature of more than 99.8, you wouldn’t be allowed in the restaurant, The Orange County Register reports.

The temperature screenings began back in January. According to The Register, a notice posted on the restaurant’s door explained that the checks are an attempt to keep "a healthy and safe dining environment" for "guests who come from all corners of the world”.

Co-owner Kelly Xiao told the newspaper: "We have family in China, so we understand the importance of doing everything we can to protect both our customers and our workers.”

Staff at the restaurant are also screened throughout their shifts.

As of March 10, 28 people in the US have died from the coronavirus, including two in California. A total of 800 cases have been reported across 36 states.
