Social distance in public spaces after Covid-19

How to Fight Coronavirus in Public Spaces

As countries start easing up on confinement measures, one of the top priorities is finding a way to guarantee social distancing in physical spaces. The impact of COVID-19 on public spaces around the world means that outbreaks can happen anywhere. If we want to get things back to normal, we need to ensure that all spaces are safe.

Based on our knowledge of the sector here at Beabloo, we believe that ensuring the safety of physical spaces is a cross-cutting decision that benefits employees, visitors, and customers. However, these decisions are redefining the customer experience.

One of the easiest and least intrusive ways to guarantee people’s safety is by using technology. To get the best results from this technology, you need excellent consulting and tech support to install and use these systems. We also advise using this technology to improve the customer experience in a post-COVID-19 world. 

One of the advantages of using technology to guarantee safety is that it adapts to the needs of the space instead of the other way around. Installing this kind of technology in airports, on public transportation, or in other public spaces doesn’t entail any complications beyond covering the entire space with sensors. People in charge that are figuring out how to avoid coronavirus in public spaces are already looking for and testing different tech solutions to control occupancy, sanitation, and body temperature. 

Some places are using devices that perform coronavirus temperature screenings to detect if anyone is showing signs of a fever. For example, in an airport, these sensors can be installed at the boarding area, or at the security checkpoint. This is a good way to make sure people interact safely with the space. It’s important that these solutions come with real-time alerts to be able to stop possible spreaders and avoid an outbreak.

Temperature control and occupancy control systems play an important role in protecting people and guaranteeing social distancing measures. When paired with a social distancing alert system, these systems help the authorities reopen public spaces and businesses more quickly. Coronavirus technology can be used anywhere people are walking around, and is already being adopted by governments, transportation authorities, and retailers around the world. These tools are also in full compliance with data protection regulations since they don’t actually store any personal data. 

Even though health authorities require only basic measures, people will ultimately demand more safety measures that protect the health and wellbeing of employees, customers, and any visitors to these spaces.

It’s clear that technology is one of the greatest allies for redesigning and optimizing physical spaces. You can install technology in any space to create more dynamic and personalized points of sale that are safe and reliable for customers and visitors. This is a surefire way to get things back to normal as soon as possible.  

Interaction Care is a Beabloo solution that uses sensors in a physical space to create a system that protects people’s health by identifying risky situations.

The software processes data collected by sensors, always respecting privacy, and sends real-time alerts to make sure everyone is complying with social distancing measures. The system monitors the inside of the space, protects visitors and employees, and manages access to take care of visitors from the moment they walk in.

This solution has already been implemented in different public spaces, including Istanbul Airport.  Ultimately, Interaction Care isn’t just for preventing the spread of COVID-19; it can also provide valuable information for improving the customer experience.
