When looking for a reopening solution for your organization, you need to know how it will meet CDC guidelines for returning to work. The key criterion for such organizations are outlined in the CDC’s ‘Restart Readiness Checklist’. Let’s see how our solution can help you tick those boxes. 

CDC Guidelines For Returning To Work

Monitor federal, state, and local public health communications about COVID-19

In order to stay ahead of COVID-19, you need access to up to date federal, state, and local COVID-19 information and guidelines. Our experts are constantly monitoring the situation and we will ensure that you are in compliance with all necessary guidelines. 

Ensure workers have access to current information 

Keeping your employees informed gives them peace of mind knowing that you are looking out for their best interests. When an administrator receives a COVID-19 update they can notify their employees and/or adjust their workplace policies if needed via our screening and contact tracing app. 

Check local public health information and the CDC COVID-19 website daily, or as needed depending on local conditions.

An effective solution is localized and customizable. Our platform’s policy recommendations are informed by local public health guidance. 

Reinforce how employees can protect themselves and others from COVID-19 by communicating: 

If you have symptoms, notify your supervisor and stay home.

If you are sick, follow CDC recommended steps, and do not return to work until you meet criteria to discontinue home isolation. 

An effective solution educates and empowers employees to monitor and protect themselves. Our daily screening app generates customized employee recommendations daily. Users receive reminders to record symptoms in a quick and easy-to-use daily screening survey. After completing the screening process the app generates a recommendation to come to work or stay home based on the policies your organization has in place. Employers can fine-tune sick employees’ recommendations to meet their organization’s preferences and align with CDC guidelines for returning to work in their area. 

Plan for conducting daily in-person or virtual health checks (e.g. symptom and/or health screenings) before employees enter the facility. 

The CDC guidelines for returning to work recommend that organizations implement a daily screening protocol for employees to follow before they enter the workplace. In-person screenings invite workplace exposure to symptomatic employees. Our digital screening solution eliminates this risk by giving people the ability to screen before they leave their house via our mobile app. 

Establish social distancing policies and practices 

Utilizing Bluetooth technology, our app has a social distance alarm feature that can buzz to let employees know if they have come within 6 feet of another person for more than 1-minute. This helps users monitor their behavior and ensure they are practicing social distancing throughout the workday. 

Develop an action plan for suspected/confirmed cases

In order to effectively combat the pandemic you must have a plan in place to respond to sick employees and/or confirmed COVID-19 cases. This plan must ensure infected employees isolate and potentially exposed employees are contacted. Our BioSecurity Portal allows you to immediately alert exposed employees while maintaining the infected employee’s confidentiality. If someone tests positive for COVID-19 our solution automatically triggers contact tracing based on the bluetooth data collected and the symptom screening information to discover who is potentially at risk for transmission.
