What About the Asymptomatic?
Take the example of a luxury senior living community in San Francisco. In late August 2020, the facility completed testing of staff and residents and came away with a clean bill of health. Barely a month later, four staff members from the same floor had tested positive and three of whom were already home with symptoms. So, they began testing staff twice a week and residents weekly.
There are many similar examples, where senior facilities are free from COVID — until they’re not. And it’s clear that early detection is even more important when, in the case of the elderly and the staff that care for them, the margin for error or misdiagnosis is slim.
FeverGuard could have sent those administrators an early warning via text alert or email, increasing their ability to isolate more quickly the infected while protecting those in their care, safeguarding staff, and stemming the tide of COVID deaths.
