We are pleased to announce that we have chosen ReturnSafe as our partner to keep you, your colleagues, and our visitors safe as we get through the Covid-19 pandemic together. The ReturnSafe app is a user-friendly and efficient alternative to paper screening surveys logbook functionality for contact tracing in the event someone tests positive. This will allow us to prevent and quickly contain outbreaks to keep our community safe and maintain business continuity.
How to use ReturnSafe
The first time you sign into the ReturnSafe app there is an onboarding process. You will be taken through a series of screens explaining the app and requesting app permissions.
As shown below, the welcome flow includes the login screen and a brief description of the app, and the daily workplace recommendations.
App permissions are necessary to activate Location Services and Notifications.
- Location services are used to create a geofence around the building or campus.
- Notifications will be used to send you reminders and other communications.
Prior to coming to the office, every employee and visitor is required to complete the Daily Check-in to receive the latest recommendations based upon your survey response. The survey should take less than 1 minute to complete. Upon completion of the survey, you will receive guidance on whether to come into the office or stay home.
In the event that you have been tested positive, you will be asked to stay home, isolate, and consult your doctor for further care.
Note: your survey responses are confidential and only accessible to designated administrators.
The app provides a manual LogBook for you to add contacts. It allows you to choose from a list of other employees or add a new contact.
When an employee or visitor has tested positive for COVID-19, the Human Resources Team will be notified. This begins with the contact tracing process. The name of the employee who tested positive will not be shared.
