Aura: The Most Comprehensive Reporting and Contact Tracing Software
Identifying and suppressing COVID-19 through state and local governments requires more than just testing. Aura, proprietary reporting and contact tracing software from GENETWORx, helps government agencies and officials quickly identify and immediately suppress cases of COVID-19, mitigating risks of outbreak.
Aura’s digital dashboards visualize the most pertinent data to create actionable information, guiding safety protocols, identifying contamination hotspots, and understanding threat levels. Heatmaps and contact tracing are also available. These dynamic display maps not only show the most active points of viral contraction, but also enable predictive analysis which allow health professionals to get ahead of the spread and initiate suppressive measures.
Aura dashboards can be accessed by patients, health professionals, and government officials via smartphone application. The dashboards help identify the rate-of-spread for the virus, track the effectiveness of suppression protocols, identify hotspots for contraction, quantify the population testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies, and provide predictive modeling based on contact tracing.
The Aura smartphone application’s user interface will clearly display all testing locations via map overlay and zip code listing as well as each location’s hours of operation. Aura can coordinate testing times and sequences (when applicable) to prevent long lines or overcrowding at each testing facility. Lastly, the app will send notifications and reminders regarding testing to help ensure effective broad-scale testing and actionable results for local and state government officials.
Contact tracing can only be implemented through an opt-in feature of the Aura smartphone application.

COVID-19 Testing for Minority Populations
Many state and local governments are seeing higher infection rates and mortality rates from COVID-19 due to their relative population of Black and Hispanic persons. These ethnic groups have been found to be four-to-five times more likely to contract COVID-19 when compared to Asian and White persons in the same area. This has left many minority groups, community leaders, and elected officials searching for immediate and effective solutions.
GENETWORx is devoted to preventing minority populations from being unfairly victimized by the coronavirus pandemic and is actively partnering with at-risk communities to develop custom testing, screening, and security protocols. Our goal is to enable minority communities to react quickly to cases of COVID-19 and suppress further infection through social-distancing, shelter-in-place, and quarantine protocols.
GENETWORx wants to keep our most at-risk citizens informed of and prepared for COVID-19 outbreaks and will work closely with state and local governments to ensure every community’s unique history with the pandemic is considered while developing a plan of action. We are committed to bring unparalleled service and unequivocal support to minority communities across the country.
COVID-19 Testing, Screening, and Security for Public Schools
While available data suggests children under 18 are less likely to display symptoms of COVID-19, it remains unclear whether they are as likely to spread COVID-19 to other persons. The uncertainty around the infection rate from children has made the thought of returning to school in the Fall particularly concerning.
Teachers, in particular, have been very vocal about their concerns that their district’s testing and screening procedures are inadequate. Teachers will be conducting in-person instruction in front of dozens or hundreds of students every day, making teaching one of the most potentially exposed professions. To complicate matters, many school districts lack the funding necessary for disposable PPE for every teacher, administrator, staff member, and student.
GENETWORx is currently partnering with local and state governments to implement Sequential Testing for Population Management in public schools. This program, which has been implemented by colleges, nursing homes, and businesses across the country, is the most comprehensive system for identifying and suppressing COVID-19 within contained populations.
Unlike many district testing policies in place, Sequential Testing for Population Management expands the testing audiences and frequencies to mitigate risk for every student, faculty member, and staff member inside the school. This program optimizes the rate at which people are tested, provides reporting on processed COVID-19 tests, and organizes appropriate safety procedures in the event a positive test is returned. With GENETWORx, schools will have the insight and preparedness to feel more comfortable.
Aura software can be integrated with schools to help increase COVID-19 screening and security. Using QR-scanning technology, school administrators, resource officers, and security guards can verify every person entering the school building has recently and verifiably tested negative for COVID-19.
COVID-19 Testing and Security Protocols for Government Buildings
Government buildings, like City Hall, the post office, and courthouses, are heavily trafficked with heavy individual turnover. The threat of COVID-19 has put many essential government functions on hold including court hearings and licensures.
GENETWORx’s Sequential Testing for Population Management to create safe perimeters around essential government buildings, allowing legal procedures and necessary services to resume.
Aura, the proprietary COVID-19 reporting and screening software from GENETWORx, can easily integrate with existing security systems and help prevent untested or coronavirus-positive individuals from entering government buildings. Through simple QR-reader technology, government buildings will have an added layer of security as well as more detailed data to help maintain a coronavirus-free environment.
GENETWORx is proud to be an ally to local and state governments and is dedicated to helping restore “life as we once knew it.” Reserve your testing capacity now.

State and Local Governments FAQs
Can state or local governments implement testing regulations which contradict federal testing standards?
Yes. There are many states which are already implementing testing standards that are both more and less stringent than recommended federal guidelines set forth by the CDC. This explains why phases of economic reopening have been staggered across the country. States and local governments partner with GENETWORx because we offer custom solutions which cater to the specific regulations mandated for every region while accommodating requests which may exceed those same mandates.
Will courts screen for COVID-19 prior to trials?
The concerns over coronavirus transmission have varied from state-to-state, county-to-county, thus the seemingly disparate policies regarding court filings and cases. GENETWORx has developed a comprehensive program to test and screen all persons inside a courthouse to mitigate risks of COVID-19 transmission and allow every local and state government to resume court activity.
How can post offices proactively reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19?
Most post offices have not experienced disrupted service since the start of the pandemic. However, there is still much that is unknown about the relative transmissibility of COVID-19 through inorganic surfaces like letter envelopes and magazines. By implementing consistent and sequential testing standards for all mail and package handlers, the risk of COVID-19 transmission for person-to-person or from surface-to-person is greatly mitigated.
Are public schools in danger of COVID-19 outbreak?
At this time, there is not a venue or group which is considered immune to COVID-19. This is why GENETWORx is partnering with local and state governments to help create added layers of testing and security for every student, faculty member, administrator, and staff member working at public schools. With GENETWORx, public schools can better test for, identify, and suppress the coronavirus while resuming in-person instruction in the fall.
Are teachers more susceptible to COVID-19 than their students?
It is unclear whether or not teachers are more prone to coronavirus infection than students. However, early data has indicated that children under 18 are far less likely to display symptoms of coronavirus than adults. This has brought about concerns from the teaching community as it is still possible that students are capable of carrying and transmitting COVID-19 without symptoms, leaving teachers more vulnerable to serious illness. Schools partnering with GENETWORx screen their entire population for the virus, regardless of whether or not individuals are displaying symptoms. This process helps quickly identify and immediately suppress cases of COVID-19, mitigating the risks of mass infection or outbreak.
