Abstract—The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on people all across the world. Even though the number of verified COVID-19 cases is steadily decreasing, the danger persists. Only societal awareness and preventative measures can assist to minimize the number of impacted patients in the work environment. People often forget to wear masks before entering the work premises or are not careful enough to wear masks correctly. Keeping this in mind, this paper proposes an IoT-based architecture for taking all essential steps to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed low-cost architecture is divided into three components: one to detect face masks by using deep learning technologies, another to monitor contactless body temperature and the other to dispense disinfectants to the visitors. At first, we review all the existing state-of-the-art technologies, then we design and develop a working prototype. Here, we present our results with the accuracy of 97.43% using a deep Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and 99.88% accuracy using MobileNetV2 deep learning architecture for automatic face mask detection.
