With a win over Switzerland in a Women’s World Hockey Championship semifinal yesterday, Canada will face defending champion United States in today’s final.
Canada returns to the gold-medal game after falling to Finland in a 2019 semifinal and taking bronze.
Vancouver’s TraceSafe will be in the WinSport Arena at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary for the game. TraceSafe is providing the self-isolation and contact tracing solutions for games and practices.
Powered by the TELUS, TraceSafe has been providing staff members and players with TraceSafe wearable safety tech solutions across the tournament bubble.
Since the arrival of the international teams on August 10th, no outbreaks have occurred despite the concerning rise of COVID Delta variant cases being reported across the world.
The most stringent health and safety regulations have been applied by Hockey Canada, in conjunction with the IIHF, the Province of Alberta and the Government of Canada.
“It’s been our pleasure to work with Hockey Canada and the Province of Alberta again to make this tournament a success,” said Susanne MacKillop, VP Sales at TraceSafe. “These players have faced multiple delays and challenges over the last year and a half, and we’re proud to support them with wearable technology that ensures the health and safety of players and staff.”
This most recent high-profile deployment follows the use of TraceSafe’s techn at the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship from December 2020 – January 2021 in Edmonton.
