What is social distance?


Social distancing is a public health practice that aims to prevent sick people from coming in close contact with healthy people in order to reduce opportunities for disease transmission. It can include large-scale measures like canceling group events or closing public spaces, as well as individual decisions such as avoiding crowds.

With COVID-19, the goal of social distancing right now is to slow down the outbreak in order to reduce the chance of infection among high-risk populations and to reduce the burden on health care systems and workers.


How can it slow the spread of COVID-19?


Recently, there are many customers inquiry our BLE beacon solution related to preventing the spread of COVID-19.


Some customers select our wristband beacon, adding an buzzer, when the distance between two beacons get closer than 1-2 meters, the buzzer start to alarm.


This solution defines social distancing as it applies to COVID-19 as "remaining out of congregrated settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible."


All of our beacon have a basic APP, it could be used directly, or use our SDK, customization of hardware and software is also available.
