David Roberts, President and partner of Ontario-based internet software developer, Glacier Digital, has created an online tool that can help businesses open safely.
COVIDScreener.ca is a web-based technology tool that automates and streamlines businesses’ COVID-19 health screening of employees and customers.
A business can set up their own account online quickly, after which employees and customers can begin using it; by answering the screening questions.
COVIDScreener.ca can be accessed from any internet-enabled device from anywhere. Businesses can pre-approve entry based on the respondent answers to the screener questions and download contact tracing information.
The key points of COVIDscreener.ca include a personalized account for each business with their own URL, and screening questions are current and updated to reflect public health regulations.
It offers two types of screening; passive screening, the same people coming in regularly can self-screen, such as employees; active screening, new people come in every day who need to be screened and then checked-in by staff, such as restaurants, dental offices or gyms.
All collected data can be downloaded and shared with public health for contact tracing, and it is auto-purged after 30 days.
