Barcodes & Bookbags: Microsoft Teams Up With Schools To Create Covid ‘Daily Pass’ For Kids

DM

Microsoft Corp. has teamed up with the Los Angeles Unified School District to bring students a Covid-19-related “comprehensive system” called “Daily Pass.” The system requires children to be scanned into school with their own unique QR code: their “Daily Pass.” If a student doesn’t have their barcode, they cannot get into school. And per the district, students will also still be wearing masks, staying six feet apart from one another and getting temperature checks outside the school. There are nearly half a million students in the Los Angeles Unified School District, ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. To earn their safe-for-school Daily Pass, students and staffers must answer questions online and test negative for the novel coronavirus every week. “Daily Pass generates a unique QR code for each student and staff member, and that code authorizes entry to a specific LAUSD location for that day only — as long as the individual receives a negative test result for COVID, shows no symptoms and has a temperature under 100 degrees, the district said,” NBC Los Angeles outlined.
