Shortly after you submit your response, you will receive a green or red screen indicating if you can begin your day or if you should stay in your room until you speak to the Health Center. The app also has a symptom checker. This questionnaire asks about possible symptoms and notifies the Health Center if you are not feeling well. You can complete the symptom checker at any time.”
“As the global leader in critical event management, Everbridge continues to support forward-thinking organizations in their efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and manage a safer return of students, staff and customers to public places,” said
Drawing on over 225 out-of-the-box integrations, the Everbridge contact tracing solution uses data from physical badge access control systems, Wi-Fi hot spots, calendaring systems, travel itineraries, visitor management, and thermal cameras to determine who may have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19. Bluetooth Low Energy proximity data compiled from digital wayfaring capabilities add information on who was within close proximity; special needs registries help protect the most vulnerable people by highlighting if they have been near an infection; real-time risk intelligence based on 22,000 data sources across 175 countries, tracks everything from virus hotspots (including a dedicated coronavirus data feed) and travel restrictions, to quarantines and states of emergency in order to determine if people are near areas of heightened risk.
Over 5,300 global organizations use Everbridge’s CEM Platform to assess threats, monitor the wellbeing of their workforce, rapidly communicate warnings, and protect supply chains. Since the pandemic began, Everbridge customers have used its software to send more than 675 million coronavirus-related communications with vital information and instructions to safeguard their populations, employees, patients, and students.
