Communicable illnesses, such as influenza and rhonoviruses spread through public and private schools like wildfire. The seasonal flu season can begin as early as October and may last as late as May (CDC). Flu activity normally peaks in the U.S. some time between December and March. Children, parents, faculty, and visitors are exposed to these viruses every time an infected child enters the school. Young children and seniors are at a high risk for serious flu complications, which makes it even more important to stop the virus in its tracks.
The Kinsa Smart Thermometer will provide faculty and parents with the means to reduce serious flu complications and absences. By accessing the app user interface, parents and school staff can view historical data, track fevers, and access information about medications and communicable illnesses. Also, there is a special feature that will alert users, when the temperature reading is concerning.
If your child attends one of the 500 schools participating in the “Kinsa for Schools” program, be sure to visit the school and sign up to receive your innovated Kinsa Smart Stick Thermometer, today.
