Singapore requires to use tracking equipment

Singapore requires the use of anti-epidemic tracking equipment when entering campuses from December.  The Ministry of Education of Singapore announced that from December 1st, students, staff and visitors from schools across the country must activate the TraceTogether app or carry a hand-in-hand anti-epidemic device (token) when entering campuses. However, the entire December will be a grace period, allowing you to scan your ID card or student card to enter the venue without using or working with an epidemic prevention device.

The Ministry of Education of Singapore stated that considering that students may not be able to use their mobile phones during class or outdoor activities, they are encouraged to go to the community clubs in the constituency of their homes to collect the hand-in-hand epidemic prevention device. At the same time, the Ministry of Education of Singapore clarified that for students who do not have a mobile phone application or carry a hand-held epidemic prevention device, students will not be turned away. The school will provide assistance, but they may not be able to participate in off-campus activities. Because you need to show it when you enter public places. However, if college students do not turn on the “Heli Tracking” application on their mobile phones or carry a hand-in-hand anti-epidemic device, they may be denied entry to the campus. All colleges and universities will notify teachers and students of the effective date of the regulations.

Singapore cinemas have taken the lead in implementing new measures in October that require visitors to register with “Joint Tracking”.

The hand-in-hand anti-epidemic device can be placed in a schoolbag or clothing pocket, can be connected to another anti-epidemic device within 2 meters, or has a Bluetooth signal of a mobile phone that has downloaded the “Heli Tracking” application, effectively recording the user’s visit area and contact people. If someone is unfortunately infected with COVID-19 pneumonia, the authorities will use this information to carry out tracking and accurately find high-risk groups. The data in the immunization device will not be uploaded, and the data stored in it will be deleted after 25 days.
