New screening app will check Duval County teachers, staff for COVID-19 symptoms
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. A new screening method will check Duval County Public Schools staff members for signs of the coronavirus or exposure to a COVID-19 case, Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene told the school board last week. Greene told the Duval County School Board during a June workshop that the app will ask a list of questions related to any possible exposure to a case of COVID-19 and about any symptoms or signs of the virus. Greene said protecting users privacy is a priority of this screening app. However, district leaders plan to evaluate how the app functions among staff before a decision on expansion is made. Staff members will begin using the app when the school year begins on Aug. 10.
Struggling to stay sober? Curious about cutting back? This app just might save you
It includes sober dating, travel information, community groups, booze-less guides, where to find the best mocktails; you name it. Gottlieb said there has been a lot of interest in Loosid’s “sober curious” groups. How can the app help? For example, select “I just relapsed and I need help” or “Weekend and holiday support,” and you’ll be linked with people and resources. “Some people are coming out of the hospitality industry -- people with no money, who need help now,” Gottlieb said.
