Poppulo: Aiding Prevention Through Digital Display Networks

As the world adapts to new shelter-in-place and social distancing measures, communities are adjusting to a new reality – one in which a trip to the grocery store is no longer easy. While there is plenty of information surrounding the new guidelines, there can be a lack of clarity in how to implement them in daily life. Four Winds Interactive (FWI) has created a series of images to use on digital displays focused on debunking myths surrounding COVID-19.

The Company is allowing all businesses with digital signage networks to use the content for free to deliver timely communications about combating the spread of the virus to their customers and employees. The digital display content, adapted from CDC guidelines, illustrates simple ways that people can better protect themselves and those around them.
