Coming to a wall near you – a new digital device ensuring you answer all COVID-19 health survey questions before you’re allowed in. Several local businesses and a school have already jumped on board.

Northwest Fresno company OnDisplay went live Wednesday with their new digital health survey. It is a large QR code placed on a wall near an entryway. Scan the code with your phone and you’re directed to a series of health related questions screening for COVID-19.

From there, you may also have to get your face scanned by a digital scanner. The machine will tell if you have a fever, or if you need to put on a mask. If you need a mask, a digital voice will even tell you, “Please wear a mask.”

It’s all designed to take the guesswork and human error out of the process of letting people into buildings with large volumes of people.

“They’re looking for a way to manage all the COVID-19 health questions,” said the company’s managing partner Theo Flores. “We’ve created this to help companies manage the process so they don’t have to use file cabinets and reams of paper to get it done.”

“They place this at the door before anyone enters the building. So the doors are locked,” explains Flores. “They’re presented with a code at the end of the survey and then they can open the door.”

The questions asked by the survey are customizable, but the example Flores showed GV Wire℠ asked the following.

  • Have you been tested or diagnosed or within 6 feet of someone who has a laboratory confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days?
  • Do you have a fever of 100.4F or higher?
  • In the last 14 days, have you experienced at least two of the following: Fever (100.4 or higher), headache, chills, loss of taste or smell?
  • In the last 14 days, have you experienced at least two of the following: sore throat, congestion, runny nose, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
  • In the last 14 days, have you experienced at least two of the following: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fatigue or body aches?

Business and Educators Already Using It

Harris Ranch, U.S. Cold Storage, No Surrender Laser Tag, and Edison Bethune Charter Academy in southwest Fresno are all using the system.

Edison Bethune is not using it for student check-in, but if a parent or guardian comes to the school they must go through the health screening process first in order to come in.

The service is free for the first month so businesses can see if it works for them. Afterwards, it’s a $14 a month charge.

Facial Scanning

The new QR code health-survey works in conjunction with the company’s facial scan technology they started rolling out a few months ago.

The face scanner is mounted right next to the QR code on the wall so a person is able to walk up to it, get their temperature checked, at the same time the machine makes sure they’re wearing a mask.

“These (pointing to the QR code and facial scanner) will eventually connect,” says Flores. “Facescan is now being shipped nationwide and abroad as well.”

Flores says they’re shipping out 25 to 30 face scanners every other day.
