Configure Coronavirus Site Safety

You can use the ArcGIS Solutions app to deploy the Coronavirus Site Safety solution in your ArcGIS Online organization. After deploying the solution to your ArcGIS Online organization, configure it to meet specific needs in your organization and load your data if needed.

Define cleaning interval

Implementing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) health safety policies for your organization requires cleaning or disinfecting high-risk locations at a regular interval. The cleaning, disinfecting, or restocking interval varies according to your organization, the volume of people, or the risk level of the site. Intervals can be set in any increment from hourly to weekly or monthly.

The Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard solution helps organizations track the cleaning status of high-risk locations to ensure compliance with organizational policies and local regulation. Using the Cleaning and Disinfecting Status map in ArcGIS Collector, janitorial staff can report each time they clean, disinfect, or restock a given location.

Update map

Using the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard, an organizational health safety officer can identify any locations that are overdue for cleaning based on the interval determined by their organizational policy. This information helps the health safety officer identify locations that are noncompliant with the organizational policy and immediately respond with dispatch of janitorial staff.

The Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard can be configured to meet specific needs in your organization. Modify the default cleaning interval (1 hour) to the interval required by your organization.

To configure the map, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to your ArcGIS Onlineorganization and browse to the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard map.
  2. Open the map in Map Viewer.
  3. Browse to Health Points Status_currentjoin and click the Filter button.
  4. Click the Edit tab to view the filter: StatusDate not in the last 1 hours.
  5. Modify the filter to reflect the appropriate interval for your organization.
  6. Click Apply Filter and save your map.

Configure dashboard

Once the map has been configured to filter on a new interval, the title of the cleaning and restocking list element in the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard and Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard needs to be updated to reflect the interval you defined.

To configure the dashboard label to reflect the changes you made to the map, complete the steps below:

  1. Sign in to your ArcGIS organization and browse to the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard.
  2. On the dashboard item page, click Edit Dashboard.
  3. Hover over the upper left corner of the Overdue Locations (>60Min.) Cleaning |Disinfection | Re-stock list element and click Configure.
  4. Click the General tab.
  5. Click Edit to modify the Title value, remove the default time interval (for example, >60Min), and update the title to reflect the new cleaning interval.
  6. Click Done.
  7. Click Save to save the dashboard.
  8. Ensure you repeat steps 2 through 7 for the Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard once you have completed the steps for the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard.

Add building floor information

For many sites, health and safety plans include interior floors and exterior spaces. ArcGIS Indoors is a complete indoor mapping system that can help you incorporate interior floors and floor awareness, and the ability to filter by indoor web layers by floor, into the Coronavirus Site Safety solution. The following apps support floor awareness:

  • Coronavirus Site Safety Map Editor
  • Coronavirus Site Safety Map Viewer
  • Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard
  • Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard

To complete this workflow, you must have your local ArcGIS Indoors geodatabase published as web layers into your ArcGIS Online organization.

Configure maps for ArcGIS Indoors

To configure the Coronavirus Site Safety solution maps to use ArcGIS Indoors web layers, you'll need to review the Level Name field values defined in your ArcGIS Indoors web layers and ensure the Floor Number field values your health safety officer is using when creating the health safety plan are the same as the values in the ArcGIS Indoors layers.

Using consistent values between Level Name field values and Floor Number field values ensures that the correct building floor information and related health safety plan information are displayed on the map and apps.

Once you have ensured consistency between your layers, add your ArcGIS Indoors web layers to the Coronavirus Site Safety Map Editor map, Coronavirus Site Safety Map Viewer map, and Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard map.

Configure web mapping apps

  1. Sign in to your ArcGIS Online organization and browse to the Coronavirus Site Safety Map Editor item page.
  2. On the item page, click Edit Application.
  3. Click Widget and click the edit button on the Filter Safety Plan and Floor widget.
  4. In the Filter Set Name: Floor Number filter group, click Add Layer.
  5. In the newly added row, in the Layer column, choose an ArcGIS Indoors web layer, and in the Field column, choose Level Name.
  6. Repeat step 5 for all the remaining ArcGIS Indoors web layers.
  7. In the Use Value column, choose the ArcGIS Indoors Levels web layer.
  8. Click OK and click Save.

Repeat the process for the Coronavirus Site Safety Map Viewer app.

Configure dashboards

To configure the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard and CCoronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard to use ArcGIS Indoors web layers, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to your ArcGIS Online organization and browse to the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard.
  2. On the dashboard item page, click Edit Dashboard.
  3. Hover over the upper left corner of a Floor Number selector and click Configure.
  4. In the Selector section, under Selector Options, click Change and choose your ArcGIS Indoors Levels web layer.
  5. In the Catogory Field parameter, choose Name.
  6. Click Action, click Add Target and choose an ArcGIS Indoors web layer, and then choose LEVEL_NAME for the Target Field.
  7. Repeat step 6 for all the remaining ArcGIS Indoors web layers.
  8. Click Done and click Save to save the dashboard.
Note:

Repeat the process for the Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard.

Extend health planning resources

The Coronavirus Site Safety solution includes dashboards that can be used to monitor health safety plan operations.

On occasion, you may need to configure the dashboard to meet specific needs in your organization. Each solution generally includes one or more feature layers, maps, and apps that can be configured to meet your needs. Review this solution with stakeholders in your organization before defining the specific configurations you will make.

Update feature layer views

The Coronavirus Site Safety solution includes a series of feature layer join views that are used to display information in the Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard and Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard. Join views are created using the Join Features analysis tool by joining two sources together based on a matching field. The benefit of the join view is that it remains up to date as the source data changes. However, when new fields are added to the source layers, the join views must be re-created with the same name and URL for the dashboards to continue working properly.

To add a field to a layer and the update the join views, complete the following steps:

  1. Add a new field to a layer (for example, the Health Points layer in the HealthSafetyPlanning hosted feature layer).
  2. Browse to the join view in your contents (for example, Health Points Status_join).
  3. On the item Overview page, scroll to the URL section. Click the Copy button.
  4. Paste the copied URL into Microsoft Notepad or another text editor for reference.

    Note:

    The feature layer name will be used below when re-creating the join. The name can be found after services in the URL structure and may also contain a unique GUID, for example, Health_Points_Status_joina45f71a48587425c9b90ee5527cd26d1.

  5. Delete the existing join view (for example, Health Points Status_join).
  6. Add the source hosted feature layer to a new web map (for example, HealthSafetyPlanning).
  7. Click Analysis > Summarize Data > Join Features.
  8. Configure the join using the following table:

    Name of joinTarget layerLayer to join to the target layerFields to matchJoin operationDefine which record is kept

    Health Points Status_join

    Health Points (HealthSafetyPlanning)

    Status

    GlobalID = Health_Points_GlobalID

    Join one to many

    Note:
    Ensure each new join view uses the names defined in the table. If you use the same names, the layers in the map and the existing dashboard widgets do not need to be reconfigured. If your join view contained a unique GUID, the new join view will need to be named with the unique GUID.
  9. If necessary, uncheck Use current map extent and check Create results as hosted feature layer view.
  10. Update the web map and app configurations for Coronavirus Site Safety Dashboard and Coronavirus Site Safety Mobile Dashboard to account for the new fields you added to the layers.
