De-Mist-Ifying Contact Tracing

As a delegate at Mobility Field Day, Dave Benham saw presentations by Mist Systems and was intrigued by their Proximity Tracing system and its potential impact on Contact Tracing and limiting the spread of COVID-19. Dave writes that the applications of their new systems are significant for contract tracers because the it gives organizations the potential ability track where infected individuals have been in a specific facility and identify what areas might need a deep cleaning. This tracking has the possibility to provide users with increased information and help increase the safety of people utilizing a given space.
