This paper aimed to address the current gaps of health and safety measures done by the institutions and establishments to counter Covid-19. The current system has the manual way of getting temperature of each individual; using hand sprays and washing of hands, the attendance using logbooks and biometrics are some of the fastest ways of transmitting virus that poses risks to the people. Thus, these gaps pushed the researchers to find an alternative way of carrying out things and lessen the risks. Safe Booth was developed as a platform composed of microcontrollers and electronic circuits that records the attendance, scans for temperature and disinfects the employees, students, dwellers, residents of the village, apartments, condos and etc. Likewise, it features a thermal camera, RFID / QR / for attendance, UVC disinfection, Buzzer, Web Portal that displays the profile and temperature, Real-time data monitoring via dashboard. With this, it will not eliminate the virus but at least it will help to prevent its spread. The researchers used the Agile: Scrum methodology of software engineering as a framework. Following the framework, the researchers sat down with the stakeholders and collected their concerns and listed it as user stories. The researchers then gave the user stories a schedule of activity and the corresponding module was created to create a solution to the existing problems. Along with this is the collection of resources and staffing. During the development, the team leader conducted daily standup meetings with the whole team and respondents to make sure the all the project deliverables are met and the project is at the right pace.
