After spending months in lockdown, countries across the world have begun lifting stay-at-home orders enforced due to the coronavirus pandemic. Yet as countries look to reopen, and students and employees return to schools and offices, there is a fear that coronavirus cases will spike. In an attempt to ease these concerns, a number of blockchain companies are developing blockchain-based digital identity solutions designed to help regions reopen safely.
Digital identity startup Civic Technologies recently entered a partnership with Circle Medical, an affiliate of San Francisco’s UCSF Health hospital, which will allow companies with more than 500 employees to verify whether or not their workforce has been tested for COVID-19. Known as “Health Key by Civic,” this solution will enable employers to see the results of each COVID-19 test taken by their employees. Moreover, once a vaccine is developed, employers will be able to determine if their employees have received the treatment.
