Citizen Care Pod to Provide Winnipeg Jets with COVID-19 Testing and Screening Solution
Team to establish safe ‘bubble’, reduce exposure to virus and track cases/contacts over the course of the 2021 season
As NHL teams prepare for the start of the upcoming season, Citizen Care Pod Corp. (CCP) announced that they will provide rapid testing and screening solutions for the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club in an effort to establish a safe bubble for its players, coaches, trainers and team officials.
CCP, powered by Connectus Global, utilizes a mobile app and blockchain technology to connect COVID-19 test results to team officials and medical staff, local healthcare authorities, physicians, and building/venue operators to facilitate a safe environment for participants. The CCP App validates compliance to organizational policies for minimizing health risks, as well as documents and logs all medical testing.

“We capture a number of data points to compile a ‘Player Health Record’, or PHR, that is used to streamline reporting to all required parties in real time,” said Mike Anderson, CEO Connectus Global Inc. “The PHR is then encrypted as a digital token on each user’s own smartphone and used to assess exposure and risk.” Connectus Global is the official global technology provider to CCP for contact tracing, digital health certificates, real time locations systems and digital enablement.
CCP has already started providing on-site PCR tests to players and team officials who have begun workouts at Bell MTS Iceplex. The testing produces results within 90 minutes and complies with the NHL’s 24-hour reporting program. The plan is to continue testing on a daily basis over the next 22 weeks through to the end of the regular season.
