Washington state high school requires student athletes to wear TRACKING DEVICES for Covid-19 ‘contact tracing’ – reports

A high school in Washington state is reportedly forcing student athletes to don ankle-worn tracking devices during games and practice, as part of what administrators say is an effort to “contact trace” Covid-19 cases.

Eatonville High School will require both student athletes and staff to wear the monitors during the upcoming school year, according to local media reports. The school argues the devices are needed to track potential coronavirus outbreaks on campus, insisting they do not actually transmit wearers’ locations, instead only tracking players’ proximity to one another and how long they remain nearby.

“We are using these monitors for high contact and moderate indoor contact sports. The monitors are for both staff (coaches) and students on the field, regardless if they are vaccinated or unvaccinated,” the school said in a statement to local outlets, dispelling rumors that the tracking devices would be required for the unvaccinated only.

Won't that extra weight on the ankle slow the athletes down?
