Contact Tracing Module: "Standalone Badge" FAQs

What is a standalone badge?
A standalone badge is a Bluetooth ID card that measures proximity to other standalone badges with Bluetooth Low Energy technology. Standalone badges do not require pairing with a phone app, hence the name Standalone.

How do I get one?
If you are an employee please contact your company's Care685 Program Administrator.

How do I carry it?
A standalone badge can be worn on a lanyard, kept in pockets, wallets, belts, or attached to phones or existing ID badges. Just remember to keep it on your person.

Do I need to charge my standalone badge?
No, standalone badges do not need to be charged. Due to the nature of Bluetooth Low Energy technology, they have a long battery life of 1 year.

How do I check the battery status?
