Tourism is the most affected business sector by the pandemic. Due to the quarantine and social distancing rules hotels, restaurants and other businesses in tourism sector struggle to re-open. Main concern is how to build the trust back for tourists to encourage travelling again.
Assurance of social distancing is the main discipline to prevent spread of disease. Both TMT250 and GH5200 have proximity monitoring functionality. Proximity devices could be configured for hotel personnel and tourists. Device constantly monitors the distance between other devices. Once the close contact is detected, device records and saves it to the memory. Full list of contacts can be traced and sent straight away. In case any of contacts got sick, hotel could instantly quarantine affected personnel and inform guests about potential risk.
WHY DO BUSINESSES IN TOURISM INDUSTRY NEED TO THINK ABOUT COVID-19?
- Trust: Using technology to prevent and assure social distancing builds trust and people will be more likely willing to take a risk and travel for holidays.
- Educate: Without feedback from dedicated device, it is difficult to understand and follow social distancing rules.
- Protect personnel: In case of someone’s sickness it is possible to trace back all the contacts. That means, only personnel who was in contact go off to quarantine, while personnel without contact could continue working.
