Digital Signage and Coronavirus Awareness

The World Health Organization has declared a global pandemic. March Madness events are being canceled. Schools are turning to remote online learning. United together, North Americans are taking proactive steps to reduce the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID19).

You can be part of the solution. Use your Watchfire digital sign to “spread the message, not the virus.” By using your sign to share tips from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), you can help your community minimize exposure to COVID-19. It will make a difference. A Kansas State University study shows that evidence-based informational posters can increase acts of hygiene. Your indoor or outdoor sign can have the same positive impact.

To aid in a rapid response, Watchfire offers content ideas that will help you become a health information provider for your community.

Start with EasyArt backgrounds and wellness animations to draw attention and add impact to your message. Use short, memorable messages. Because it can be difficult to read too many words at once, divide longer messages into two to three words phrases across multiple frames. (Download the LED Sign Message Design Guide.) Before each message, consider a slide that establishes your mission. Try phrases like, “Stop the Spread of Germs,” “Stay Healthy” or “Health Tip from [your company name.]”
