Danbury City employees using Sara Alert app to monitor COVID-19 symptoms

Danbury City employees have been using the Sara Alert app to monitor COVID-19 symptoms.  The police department is now part of the employee pool using the app.  Acting Health Director Kara Prunty says they're monitoring it as best as possible, but have had some technical issues.  The app was originally designed to be for contact tracing.  The city used it before getting the state contact system.  If the Danbury Health Department gets a notification through Sara Alert that an employee answers yes to a symptom, they will follow up to go through the employee's symptoms.  City employees are not supposed to come into work if they answer yes.  Punty says the point is to be self-screening in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
