The COVID-19 pandemic arises in the year 2020 that leads to almost more than 100,000,000 confirmed cases happened in worldwide and yet, the cases are continuing to rise now. One of the common methods that used to prevent the COVID-19 is through keeping the social distancing between each other. However, people do not aware of the importance of applying social distancing rules. A low-cost solution is urgently needed for contact tracing and remind the users to keep the social distancing with the others. An IoT-based safety distance monitoring (ISDM) device is proposed to monitor safety distance, remind people to always stay alert and keep the data of the users that violated the social distancing rules for contact tracing. ISDM is a lightweight wearable wristwatch. Bluetooth Low Energy technique is used to send and receive information such as body temperature and contact tracing information. Fever is the most common symptom of COVID-19 patients. ISDM can operate either online or offline. The health and contact tracing information are stored in a local Micro-SD card storage when offline and data will be uploaded to the cloud server for further analysis once ISDM is connected. The detailed contact tracing information can be used to trace the potential COVID-19 patients with close contact with the COVID-19 patient.
