TraceSafe Inc (CSE:TSF) (OCTMKTS:UTOLF) announced a new partnership on Tuesday that will help put fans in seats at sports stadiums and venues across the UK and Ireland.
The wearable safety technology company is teaming up with Ireland’s Elite Event Management to implement the firm’s contact tracing technology throughout venues in the region and allow visitors to maintain social distancing procedures at sports and events.
In a statement, the British Virgin Islands-based company said that the partnership is an “important advancement” in the move to allow sports teams to resume their seasons in front of a crowd of fans in a safe and secure fashion.
‘We continue to innovate so that our products can help fans get back into stadiums and venues in a safe and responsible manner," said Dennis Kwan, CEO of TraceSafe Technologies in a statement.
"Stadiums and venues have a duty of care to their fans to ensure that the environment is safe, and TraceSafe technology solutions will play a major role in achieving this."
TraceSafe’s wristbands will be given to all spectators that enter participating venues, which can instantly detect safe distance violations, alerting the wearer and guaranteeing social distancing.
In addition, the contact tracing solutions include multi-level contact mapping that instantly detects people who may be exposed or infected to initiate actions in a timely fashion, helping to curb further spread of COVID-19.
"We're excited to implement TraceSafe's contact tracing technology in stadiums and venues across the United Kingdom and Ireland," said Oliver Kirwan, CEO of Elite Event Management. "Utilizing TraceSafe will allow us to ensure physical distancing at all events which will allow spectators of all sports to return to attending matches and events, safely.''
TraceSafe’s technology is currently deployed by governments and private organizations around the world.
