Strategy

USA Track & Field (USATF) and Movista have partnered to protect the safety of athletes, coaches, employees and the public at large by leveraging cutting-edge mobile technology. Movista's Project Health technology gives USATF a trackable way to log health screenings, ensuring users reduce the risk of potential exposure to COVID-19. For example, before any USATF national office employee can start their assigned shift, the app requires an answer to a series of questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and exposure. If the employee indicates they are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to risk, the system restricts them from working in the building that day and instructs the employee on what steps to take. If the employee has not been exposed to risk and is not experiencing symptoms, they are cleared for work.
