ContactAlert For Schools
PROTECT STAFF AND PROVIDE LEARNING CONTINUITY IN SCHOOLS
ContactAlert – Contact Tracing for COVID-19
Education leaders face many challenges. Districts must fulfill their obligation to keep staff and students safe while also ensuring that teachers are consistently available for in-person learning or healthy enough for distance learning. Moreover, the Department of Public Health strongly recommends schools notify individuals who may have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. At the request of several school districts, CENTEGIX enhanced its CrisisAlert platform with ContactAlert to provide contact tracing for teachers and staff based on the location of contact and duration of contact.
CONTACTALERT™ ENABLES DISTRICT LEADERS TO FIGHT COVID-19 WITH CONTACT TRACING SCHOOL CONSTITUENTS.
TEACHERS, STAFF, AND VISITORS:
Contact tracing is available for all people that wear the panic button badge. They only have to wear the device, nothing else. Visitors would wear the badge with the panic button disabled.
PROXIMITY AND DURATION:
Departments of Public Health have set guidelines for exposure to be close proximity and contact duration longer than 15 minutes.
ANONYMITY AND DATA PRIVACY:
We know it is critically important to protect information and keep individuals anonymous. Our platform is designed to protect user’s data and maintain anonymity.
UTILIZING EXISTING DEPLOYMENT:
Contact tracing utilizes the same underlying platform as CrisisAlert. There are no additional requirements or changes necessary to utilize contact tracing
“OUR TECHNOLOGY LOCATES INDIVIDUALS WITH GREAT ACCURACY, WHICH TODAY OUR CUSTOMERS USE TO GET HELP TO THE RIGHT LOCATION IN THE EVENT OF AN INCIDENT. EXPANDING THE USE OF OUR PRIVATE SECURITY NETWORK TO INCLUDE CONTACT TRACING WAS A NATURAL FIT.”
– MATTHEW STEVENS, CEO – CENTEGIX
ContactAlert™ improves a district’s preparation and response efforts by enabling them to notify individuals who have been in close proximity and the school locations visited within a specific timeframe (i.e. classrooms, hallways, gymnasiums, etc.).
ContactAlert™ reduces the administrative burden of the COVID-19 contact tracing process and helps districts:
- Determine which rooms may need cleaning
- Notify individuals who may have been exposed
- Protect personal information during the contact tracing process
- Save time and money in managing school response
IN A CRISIS, EVERY SECOND MATTERS.
