(Symptoms category)

Step 2b – Add COVID-19 evening questions (optional)

Then enter Temperature in the text box, select Show, Decimal, C as unit. Also select Daily z-score (higher better) and Morning or Evening. If you need to collect temperature for Morning and Evening, create two custom fields and name them ‘Morning Temperature’ and ‘Evening Temperature’.


Step 3 - Adjust your team dashboard to display COVID-19 alerts

From Team settings – Readiness dashboard, deselect non-essential wellness measures and select the 3 covid-19 categories (temperature, exposure, symptoms) and click Save.
