Just for the record email from the ‘Government’ to me recently – Mick Raven
From 12 July, all workplaces and retail businesses must use the NSW Government QR code
to check in all visitors, including:
This is the most effective way to help contact tracers keep us all safe.
The ACT government has used its check-in app to monitor whether businesses are complying with health orders,
despite saying the data would only be used for “contact tracing”.
The WA government was forced to introduce legislation after failing to reach an agreement with police over the use of information
collected from the SafeWA app, Premier Mark McGowan says.
Canberrans will soon face fines if they do not use the Check In CBR app on public transport,
or in retail stores, taxis and ride-sharing services, under new rules announced on Thursday by the ACT government.
An idea that South Australia’s contact tracing program could continue after COVID-19 passes
has seemingly garnered little support among politicians and the public, with some calling for it to be “nipped in the bud”.
The Queensland Police Service (QPS) obtained a “lawfully issued search warrant”
to access data from the Check In Queensland COVID-19 app.
In addition to hospitality venues, places like shopping centres, grocery stores, gyms, universities, cinemas,
hairdressers and stadiums will be required to make customers register with the government’s Check In Queensland app.
Failure to comply with public health directions can lead to a $13,345 fine or six months’ imprisonment.
Patrons without smartphones
For patrons who do not have access to a smartphone,
businesses and organisations are encouraged to record their contact details and time of entry in digital form
using a non-QR electronic device, such as a computer.
This record can be in the form of a spreadsheet or any other form of digital entry
that can track customer check-ins and protects the privacy of your clientele.
