How does COwin-KIDS work?
Each student and employee is assigned a bluetooth pendant that they must wear at all times during their stay in the educational center, and this records the companions with whom they have been continuously close to less than 1.5 meters for 15 minutes.

Those responsible for the educational center can analyze the information on the number of risk contacts to adopt preventive measures, register them in the system and monitor their evolution.
