1. Kinsa Thermometer Project

     

    Thanks to funding from the ACE Foundation and the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, Rawlins County Health Center and Rawlins County Public Health Department are excited to provide Kinsa Thermometers to the Rawlins County Community.

    Once you download the Kinsa app, these smart thermometers can provide aggregate data of fevers to the hospital and public health of temperatures rising in the county. This information does not provide demographic data to the hospital or public health.

    If you are a community member interested in a thermometer for your household, you can receive one at the Rawlins County Public Health Department or Rawlins County Health Center during regular business hours.
