The Social Distancing and Contact Tracing solution uses a wireless device worn by employees to help enforce the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing and automates contact tracing. The solution, says the company, helps enforce distancing guidelines and maintains a record of interactions, enabling employers to have a tool to help return people to the workplace safely where interactions are unavoidable.

The tag is worn as a wrist strap, pendant, or key fob and detects proximity of other tags. When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time, the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the company’s software system. The tag functionality is also available as a smart phone application.

“Until there is a vaccine for the coronavirus,” says Sy Sajjad, CEO of AiRISTA Flow, “social distancing will be required as we get back to work and try to return to some level of normalcy. And for those not yet immune, contact tracing is needed to help prevent flare ups.”

The company’s cloud-based software system can be deployed quickly to collect interactions and manage the tags. Triggers for tag distances and event durations are configurable. The software system maintains reports of contacts and provides historical tracing of those contacts. Platform analytics provide a view into behavior trends, the effectiveness of remediation attempts, and reports at individual, group, and departmental levels.

Tags communicate with the software platform using existing wireless infrastructure, employees’ smart phones, or small gateways provided by the company. The system can integrate securely with government and agency databases.
