About the Project

Description

The project has evolved overtime, but the main mission is to improve the accessibility and availability of COVID-19 testing across the US. Our goal is to deconstruct the complicated, fragmented system and information around testing and make it easily accessible to everyday citizens.

We provide an easy to use interface that lists out all the testing facilities on a easy-to-use map including all the state level guidelines & testing criteria. We do a simple follow-up process to enable people to start thinking about contact tracing and self-isolation when they suspect they have a COVID-19 diagnosis.

How far along is it

Our MVP is completed and live at the moment mostly focused on providing people with the testing locations near them & the state-level guidance they need to follow.

Things that are still pending:

1) Improvement of Testing Location API & Map
2) Finish Contact Tracing Process & Notification System
3) Designing & Finalizing Resources Guides
4) Continual Content Production around Testing, Contact Tracing & Self-Isolation
4) Creating a Portal for Employers to Provide for their workers
