COVID-19 QR Check-in Cards

If you don’t have a smartphone or are unable to scan a QR code to enter and exit indoor premises, be sure to get a COVID-19 QR Check-in Card. 

“Service NSW have created QR Check-in Cards that will make it easier for residents and business owners to check in and out of indoor locations,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Ambrose Doolan. “Areas in NSW are opening up out of lockdowns and with restrictions easing it is evident that QR code check-in will continue into the future.”

These Check-in cards are a hard copy card that can sit in your wallet. The card has an encrypted, unique QR code that contains a customer’s registered contact details. When a business scans the QR code on the card, the customer’s registered contact details automatically populate in the unique Service NSW business online webform.

“These unique cards will assist those who don’t have a smart phone or are unable to scan a unique QR code to enter indoor locations, keeping individuals and businesses COVID safe.”

Importantly checking in electronically provides fast access and accurate records that helps NSW Health quickly contact individuals who may have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. “This is a critical part of helping stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” Cr Doolan concluded. 
Businesses will benefit from residents having these new cards as the COVID-19 check-in card will help reduce queuing and make record keeping easier for businesses. 

Information and resources for businesses can be found on the NSW Government website

For individuals to sign up for your unique COVID-19 check-in card, contact Service NSW on 13 77 88 or you can register online at service.nsw.gov.au
