BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — A new program that helps families track illnesses in schools is coming to Bloomington elementary schools starting this fall.

The FLUency school health program uses a smartphone app to keep track of sick children in that particular school, while also providing a resource for common symptoms and illnesses, and real-time guidance on suggested next steps.

Each participating family has the ability to keep track of each member with in-app individual profiles, and receives one free, app-enabled thermometer to take temperature readings.

The company says the app’s overall goal is to help reduce the spread of illness.
