In anticipation of the increase of in-store shoppers during the holiday season, the government of Quebec announced an intensification of control measures inside commercial establishments to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Commercial establishments such as retail and food stores, pharmacies, and liquor stores, will be required to adopt an in-store occupancy limit and display the maximum number of customers allowed at the front of their store. Inside the space, the stores are responsible in ensuring that social distancing and the use of face masks are respected by shoppers.


With these new regulations to be in effect as of December 4th, retailers can ensure compliance by integrating technologies like C2RO’s smart safety solutions, including automated occupancy management and real-time face mask detection, to automate safety procedures and minimize unnecessary contact between staff and visitors.

Leveraging your store’s existing security cameras and C2RO’s proprietary AI technology, we help you automatically manage your store’s occupancy rate and traffic in real-time by using a display at your entrance with a simple traffic light system to inform visitors whether they can enter or not, depending on the current number of visitors in your store versus total number of visitors allowed. Our system can also include face mask analysis which detects the ratio of visitors with and without a face mask, helping you ensure that your spaces are in full compliance with government health regulations. Furthermore, all of your store’s data can easily be accessed through our secured and centralized analytics dashboard, allowing you to actively monitor your store occupancy and visitor face mask breakdown throughout the day.
