CastleBranch Releases CB Roll Call to Help Protect Educators from COVID-19
September 14, 2020
WILMINGTON, NC—Infectious disease screening and compliance management company CastleBranch is building on its groundbreaking efforts to help protect people from COVID-19 with the release of CB Roll Call, designed specifically to protect instructors and educators. This new tool helps educators—now deemed essential workers by the federal government–to identify students who are clear of COVID-19 symptoms, and those who are not, before they step foot inside a classroom.
On August 20, 2020, the White House formally announced that teachers are to be considered essential workers in an effort to facilitate in-person learning. The declaration placed teachers in the same category as healthcare professionals, who have been deemed “critical infrastructure workers” by the Department of Homeland Security. Now being asked to return to the classroom, many educators find themselves at higher risk of exposure to COVID-19.
But educators are not healthcare workers. Nonetheless, they are being asked to help prevent the spread of infectious disease by identifying common COVID-19 symptoms and collecting wellness records while maintaining compliance with state and federal privacy laws. Furthermore, the simple act of collecting this information from students in-person puts teachers at risk of exposure.
CB Roll Call is designed to help teachers mitigate this risk by providing visibility into the health and wellness of a classroom before teachers and students arrive. The online application, used in conjunction with CB COVID-19 Compliance, compiles daily wellness records for participating users, including temperatures recordings, symptom reporting, travel and exposure attestations. Based on the recorded data, an educator is then given visibility into which students are symptom- and exposure-free of COVID-19, which ones are not symptom- or exposure-free, and enables them to make the best decision for the health and safety of themselves, their classroom and their family. The tool, designed by a company with over 20 years of experience as a consumer reporting agency and infectious disease screening organization, is also built to ensure compliance with all relevant state and federal privacy regulations.
“Becoming an essential worker means you should be protected like an essential worker,” said Brett Martin, CEO of CastleBranch. “As essential workers, teachers are now on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19, which is why we want to make sure they have the resources they need to protect themselves, their classrooms and their communities.”
