A Workspace Check-In, Screening, and Monitoring App for Covid-19
Covid Guard: Open Your Business Safely
No matter what we are each dealing with in our own lives, we have all been going through this pandemic together. While some of us may be enjoying working from home, many businesses simply can’t function that way. Getting people back to work is critical, but it needs to be done as safely as possible. Minimizing the stress and fear that can follow staff heading back into the office is key.
That’s where Covid Guard comes in, a new open source app created for organizations needing to open safely and in accordance with state regulations.
It runs on the Microsoft 365 platform and is available for both mobile devices and workstations. Because the app is open source, it’s free to download and use. It’s a way to give back to the community during these times where businesses are struggling. It can also be customized or branded for your business.
What does Covid Guard Do?
At its core, Covid Guard is a check-in, screening, and monitoring app designed to provide a safer environment for your employees and guests. It regulates the flow of people in and out of a location while it’s built in reporting documents the steps you’ve taken to meet your state’s regulations.
Social distancing requirements are supported with a capacity rule that limits the number of staff or guests into an office at any given time. It also walks each person entering the business through a brief series of questions and a temperature check-in to determine whether they may have been exposed to Covid-19. If any of the answers are red flagged, the staff member can be told to quarantine or self-isolate at home before returning to work, and to contact the human resource department. Again, this is all customizable to meet your business needs.
