TraceSafe Inc (CSE:TSF), a global leader in wearable safety tech including contact tracing and self-quarantine management, announced Thursday it has secured a new order from the Hong Kong government.
The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) confirmed the award of 120,000 TraceSafe e-wristbands to be used in Hong Kong's Home Quarantine Support System, the company said in a statement.
TraceSafe's disposable wristbands have been utilized in Hong Kong since the end of March to assist the OGCIO in managing and enforcing its quarantine program for foreign visitors and returning citizens.

TraceSafe said it first provided the government of Hong Kong with disposable monitoring wristbands, which were given by healthcare providers and authorities at airports.
The wristbands connect with software that allows the Hong Kong government to enforce quarantine amongst travelers and those who tested positive for COVID-19. These and other measures have been used by the Hong Kong government to fight and control the spread of the virus within its borders.
"We are pleased with the ongoing deployment of TraceSafe's wristband technology in Hong Kong and our most recent contract is a testament to the utility of the TraceSafe technology,” said TraceSafe Technologies Inc CEO Dennis Kwan.
"TraceSafe is a significant tool to help not only manage quarantine, but to provide a safer environment through real-time contact tracing in work spaces. We are pleased that TraceSafe is an optimum solution for the Hong Kong OGCIO."
