A company called PointGrab has developed sensors that can track the location of people inside the building, and set up alerts when people come closer than six feet.
If businesses are to get reluctant workers back into the office, finding ways to maintain social distancing will be key.

The company has already deployed more than 10,000 sensors, which are roughly the size of a smoke alarm. However, some are concerned that the sensors could violate employee’s privacy.
