Cloud Software to track employees during the COVID-19 Pandemy

My company is developing a SaaS that will help companies to track their employees during the COVID-19 outbreak and will enable their staff to clear which emplkoyees will return to work and which ones won´t due to COVID-19 sympthons, also will provide a dashboard to management staff to know which teams will fall short (and for how long) due to quarentine. The software will collect questions about the COVID-19 symptohns only, blood screenings and quick tests for COVD-19 will also be stored on the application. Only our clients will be accessing staff data and they will have security logins and also user levels hierarchy. My question is: should the software comply to HIPPA or HITECH laws? Or the operators from our clients will have to be certified in those laws?
