Regroup Mass Notification, which powers our CivicReady® mass notification solution, has released two new mapping layers that let administrators visualize the spread of COVID-19 at state and local levels. The map overlays can be toggled on in CivicReady’s existing map view when creating a geo-targeted message, and public safety communicators will soon be able to view the impact of the pandemic as it relates to stored addresses for people, groups, and locations in their CivicReady system.

Regroup has developed this new tool to equip clients to respond to the current global pandemic, increase situational awareness, and inform their communities. The functionality is a free addition to the already award-winning mass notification platform. Data for the map layers is provided by Johns Hopkins University and the University of Washington for state and local levels, respectively.

At the time of writing, the United States has confirmed 10,442 cases of COVID-19. The virus, commonly called the Coronavirus, was first reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) in December 2019.

“At Regroup, we are closely following developments pertaining to the global pandemic in order to best serve our clients. In the best of days and times of crisis, our team stands side-by-side with them to help keep their communities informed and safe,” said Chris Utah, COO of Regroup. “These additional map layers will help our clients visualize the outbreak in a way that enables them to see how their assets—people and locations— may be impacted.”
