Contact Tracing | PlaceOS

Effective Contact Tracing and People Finding

Maintaining a sanitary workplace has never been more important, most contact tracing solutions only cover peer-to-peer, this ignores the fact that viruses can remain on certain common workplace surfaces long enough to spread through touch. It’s critical not only for the 'who' but the 'where' as well.

This information can be piped real-time into any time-series database with historical data stored and made available through common analytics software.

Key Features

Use Cases

  • An employee has reported positive for a COVID test, a report is automatically generated for anyone who has been in close proximity over the last two weeks, as well as each location. People who have either been in close contact with either person or location visited within a 6 hour window is notified.
  • Locations identified as potentially at risk can automatically be made unavailable due to health risks, cleaners are notified and can prioritize these rooms to be sanitized. Once cleaners mark off the rooms, they are automatically made available again.
  • Any employee who returns a positive result will be unable to return to the office for two weeks automatically blocking any booking requests, management can also be notified to provide extra support during this period.

This is up to you. We are a software company, all user interactions could happen from mobile devices or automatic control triggers.
