Software introduction

The Preble County Chamber of Commerce is inviting local business owners to attend one of three free virtual sessions presented by Recovery Amped on Wednesday, Aug. 5. Recovery Amped was created in 2019 to help address mental health and substance abuse disorders but is now an essential tool to virus tracking during the global pandemic, helpful in not only possibly saving lives, but also keeping the economy open, according to its creators. This software automates the entire symptoms tracking and contact tracing process. The software is built to help employers be more informed, make better decisions, and help predict the spread of COVID-19 or any other future outbreak in the workplace. Attend any one of the three sessions. Sessions are planned via Zoom for 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. Email leslie.collins@preblecountyohio.com to RSVP.
