“The protocol works like this: employees would download the ProtectWell app and answer a series of questions every day, UnitedHealth and Microsoft say. It also offers the ability of employers to include their own questions for workers.”
“’They are then either cleared to go to work, so that all employees know their colleagues have also been cleared or advised to stay home and/or get tested,’ a UnitedHealth spokesman said. ‘If they get tested, the results get to employee and employer quickly so that employer can take whatever additional actions are needed to help keep the workplace safe. There’s an employer dashboard that lets employers see trends and anticipate any hotspots in order to help keep their business running, and employees safe.’”
