Small businesses across America are having restrictions placed upon them due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those fortunate enough to remain open now face the challenge of trying to generate enough revenue to stay afloat. Small businesses, with their lack of funds, have resorted to listing their safety precautions on their front door to inform patrons. However, viewing these rules would require patrons to leave their homes. Additionally, there is no consistent set of rules being enforced by the government which is dangerous as some patrons may feel that stricter procedures be in place. These inconsistencies and lack of information can lead to patrons being afraid of visiting stores which then harms revenue. To better recognize what precautions each business is taking the MyCovidSafeTown (MCST) app was developed to allow users (i.e., patrons) to find any registered small businesses in the area and inform them of the COVID-19 safety precautions being taken.
