Techcouver: TraceSafe to Provide Contact Tracing at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships

TraceSafe is a full suite of real-time location management services and contact tracing solutions enabled through advanced low power Bluetooth beacons and enterprise cloud management.

Powered by the TELUS, TraceSafe will provide staff members and players with TraceSafe wearable safety tech solutions across the tournament bubble.

Hockey Canada has developed strict protocols to keep close to 1,000 players, team staff, members of the media, officials, and support personnel safe throughout the single-venue format at Rogers Place in Edmonton without spectators.

To promote the safety of all participants and the community at large, every tournament member will be required to self-isolate upon arrival in their individual hotel room and will be supplied with a TraceSafe wristband that will enable event organizers to ensure that they self-isolate for the required time.

Additionally, throughout the event, all teams and tournament staff will have TraceSafe’s contact tracing beacon embedded in their event credentials. TraceSafe’s low powered BLE technology will prompt physical distancing reminders and provide real-time contact tracing for all participants.
