Keeping your family, friends and community safe from COVID-19 is everyone’s concern. But getting sick and not knowing whom you may have infected can leave you feeling even worse. Syndesy, an app designed to create safe connections, has recently added a new “Check-ins” feature for users to check in or monitor wherever they go, so in the event they do contract COVID-19, they can inform their family and friends of their travels by generating a report available through the app.
According to Syndesy co-founder Jody Savin ’82, a writer, producer and entrepreneur, “If we all keep track of where we have been and when, we can voluntarily share potential locations and times of exposure. We do not live in an autocracy that is tracing our every movement, so it is incumbent upon us, as individuals, to keep track of our movements should we become infected or if someone else with whom we have crossed paths becomes infected.”
With a push of a button, the “Check-ins” feature allows users to store their geo location with a date- and time-stamp. Users can then download a report that lists all of the places they have visited over a period of time.
In an effort to contain the pandemic, the Syndesy app is currently being offered for free and can be downloaded in the Apple App Store.
