The Department of Health has warned that all businesses must now have registered for the Check In Qld app.
Minister for Health and Ambulance Services, Yvette D’Ath said latest figures indicated an additional 77,000 businesses had signed up by the deadline and more than 32 million check-ins had been made.
“That brings the total business applications to more than 128,000 and total check-ins using the app to more than 97 million,” Ms D’Ath said.
“We are in an enviable position because of the sacrifices made by each Queenslander, so let’s continue this good work and get everybody using this fantastic check-in app,” she said.
The Minister said all businesses must register for the app, which became compulsory on 9 July.
“It’s an incredibly straightforward process,” Ms D’Ath said.
“Once the business is set up, it doesn’t need to do anything else other than check that their customer has logged in,” she said.
“This important safety tool enables our contact tracers to reach out to people and get on top of any potential outbreaks early and find those links quickly.”
She said the app had already proved its effectiveness.
“As we continue to look at ways of easing restrictions, this is a vital step to achieving that and building confidence in our contact tracing efforts,” Ms D’Ath said.
