What is BluePass Token
BluePass Token 2.0 is a contact tracing device.
All work pass holders who meet the following criteria must wear the token at all times:
- Work in construction, marine shipyard or process sectors.
- Stay in dormitories.
It allows more effective contact tracing identification of close contacts. This helps to conduct contact tracing quickly and minimise disruption to your work.
How does it work
It detects other nearby:
- BluePass Tokens
- TraceTogether Tokens
- Mobile phones with TraceTogether app
If your BluePass Token detects another token within 2m for 14 minutes, your BluePass Token will record that as a close contact.
If there is a COVID-positive case, this data will be sent to MOH for contact tracing. There are no confidential data stored in the token.
