Abstract: We propose a low-cost internet of things (IoT)-enabled COVID-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance system that counts the number of people entering and leaving a vicinity, ensures physical distancing, monitors body temperature and warns attendees and managers of violations. The system comprises of multiple sensor nodes communicating with a centralized server. The data stored on the server can be used for compliance auditing, real-time monitoring, and planning purposes. The system does not record the personal information of attendees nor provide contact tracing information.
