For employers to keep their employees safe as they #ReturnToWork, they need accurate, timely, county-level information on how many confirmed cases of COVID-19 there are in the areas surrounding their offices, campuses, and warehouses. However, instead of manually surfing dashboards, security experts and stakeholders can save locations and collect COVID-data all in one place. By analyzing this data daily, employers can equip themselves to make educated decisions about when to reopen.
SimpleSense was a winning participant in the Newlab COVID-19 data hack, where we learned about the Narrativa APIthat collects Johns Hopkins data every five minutes throughout the day. Based on this API, we created a streamlined dashboard where users can enter all of the countries, states, and counties they want to monitor. From here, they can download this data and receive a daily email to add to their own internal data tracking tools.
With the CovidNotify App updates, security teams will be better able to assess the risk of reopening and continued risk of infection once open. How to get started:
