The online module includes information about patient isolation, tips to monitor the individual, hygiene procedures as well as best practices regarding disposable masks and gloves.

“Our goal is to help the general public care for family members and loved ones who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms at home,” said Febris founder and CEO Kirkland Brooks. “We’re leveraging the power of technology to provide practical, actionable information to keep caretakers and patients as safe as possible.”

In March 2020, the company debuted a free online COVID-19 (coronavirus) Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training module designed for nurses and medical staff. 

To date, more than 431,000 people in the United States have been infected with COVID-19, and more than 14,700 Americans have died. According to the latest modeling by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the U.S. is expected to reach its highest daily number of coronavirus infections and deaths on or around April 12.

“It’s great to see Febris stepping up and innovating quickly to help our community -- and the world -- in this time of crisis,” said Jennifer Bonnett, executive director of The Creative Coast.
