Howler has developed a ground-breaking Covid-19 self-screening app that you can download for free for personal use

As South Africa slowly and carefully moves into Lockdown Level 3, the movement of people in and out of buildings, schools and public areas presents a health risk that can lead to a spike in COVID-19 infections.

Keep.Out.Covid is a simple, effective solution to a complex problem.

Developed by technology company, Howler, it is an easy to use app and suite of tools, available on iOS and Android, that helps with temperature checks, symptom diagnosis, information collection and most importantly, the flagging of employees that are at risk of having COVID-19.

What makes the system unique is its ability in helping to attain personal information, helping in the tracking and tracing of infected individuals and the network of on call doctors to consult those with early symptoms. The full features of the app include:

  • Screening

Users can download the app and do pre-screenings at home or before arrival. For every successful screening, the individual will receive an access code valid for 24 hours for quick and easy verification on arrival.

  • Scanning

Scanning allows organisations to verify successful pre-screening access codes and record temperature readings in real time. For individuals or visitors that do not pre-screen, use the scanning app to do onsite screening.

  • Infrared Thermometer & Temperature Recording

An infrared non-contact thermometer captures temperature onsite and matches them in real time to successful screenings conducted before arrival.

  • Secure Database Collection

A closed database collects individual’s screening and temperature information in real time. Reports made available daily to designated managers or on request by authorities.

  • Network of Doctors

A network of doctors available to respond in real time to all employees’ flagged screening results and available to issue medical certificates where required.

Check out the Keep.Out.Covid site for more information or download the app for free on iOs and Android stores.
