What does the app do?
NZ COVID Tracer app is an contact tracing app that enables faster contact tracing by creating a digital diary of the places you visit. After downloading the app, you will be asked to enter your email address and create a password. You’ll then receive an email with a 6-digit code that will allow you to complete the registration process.
To create a digital diary of the locations you visit, select the ‘scan’ option and point your camera at any COVID-19 QR code poster so the code fits within the target area on the display of your phone. A green tick will show up on the display when the QR code has been scanned successfully. (Hint: make sure to give NZ COVID Tracer permission to access to your camera when prompted.)
You can sign up for contact alerts, so that NZ COVID Tracer will let you know if you have checked into a location at the same time as a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19, so you can be on the watch for any symptoms and take appropriate steps to protect your friends and whānau.
Businesses can find out how to create a QR code poster for their workplace here.
