A required coronavirus screening app for workers and employers is being delayed. The SoCo COVID-19 Check app, which requires workers to answer a series of COVID related questions before their shifts, is not being mandated at this time because the app not being fully available to employers. Android versions of the app are available to employees and employers. However, it’s the Apple side that’s having some difficulty.
Health Officer Dr. Sundari Mase says that after Apple approves it fully, employers will have one week to implement it. Dr. Mase also insists that personal information isn’t being collected and that a screening cannot be leaked to personal data. Many have expressed concern over privacy issues regarding the app.
