Are You Using Access Control For Coronavirus Contact Tracing? Helpful? Not Helpful?

Coronavirus has been an impact for many months now across the globe. Are you seeing access logs being used for contact tracing?

The concept is straight-forward, but not fail-proof. As we covered in Use Access Control Logs To Constrain Coronavirus, many access systems can develop reports that show who else might have been in close proximity to someone infected by COVID if they scan through the same door/turnstile/opening within a short time.

The approach is not foolproof because it may not track how long someone is in an area (usually card scans only), and it doesn't include areas without access readers or with people who have Tailgated or violated Passback rules.

Does any system or approach do this better than others? What are you seeing in the field?
