Inspiration

Two team members currently work at retail stores. They noticed that the mandatory COVID-19 screening process prior to their shift was often not conducted properly. COVID-19 screenings of each employee are also time consuming for managers and potentially dangerous if they come in contact with someone infected.

What it does

It allows associates to answer a series of questions to determine if they may have Covid-19.  A sensor attached to any compatible device is then used to measure the temperature of the user. It is only when they are deemed “safe” that they are allowed to start their shift.

How we built it

In order to build the website, we used a couple programing languages that are dependent. PHP is placed as the back end code for the website. CSS and HTML were used for the structure with some JavaScript as well. MySQL is used as much as PHP in order to store all data in the assigned database.

Challenges we ran into

We had trouble establishing a database connection.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We have managed to create a website from scratch that functions perfectly with no glitches and furthermore it uses a database as its source for stored information. We believe this is a website that can be used on a separate device and with its cheap price, small businesses can benefit from it and utilize it in their stores.

What we learned

This was the first hackathon for all four members of the team. We learned the importance of collaboration as well as the need to take a break and de-stress.

What's next for Covid Self-Assessment

  1. Extend its abilities to take more inputs such as visitor and customer temperature
  2. Improve the visual quality of the website
  3. Utilize a bigger database to store more data
