Mandated Check In Qld to aid contact tracing at pubs, restaurants and cafes

JOINT STATEMENT

The Palaszczuk Government’s new COVID-Safe check-in app will be mandated for most hospitality businesses across Queensland from 1 May to assist with contact tracing efforts.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said that mandating Check In Qld for Queensland pubs, restaurants and cafes would allow contact tracers to more readily access information at a critical time for the State’s public health response.

“Alongside testing, contact tracing is our most valuable tool to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community,” the Premier said.

“Over the past 12 months, we have relied on our team of contact tracers to quickly identify and assist anyone who may have been exposed to the virus.
