Check In Qld seeing rapid uptake

The Queensland Government has revealed that the Check In Qld app has been used to record more than 1 million check-ins since its launch less than a month ago.

The COVID-19 contact tracing app has seen rapid uptake, with more than 7600 local businesses having registered.

The secure, free and contactless app has been designed to help support the state’s recovery from the pandemic. It is designed to collect contact details that will be stored for up to 56 days and can be accessed by Queensland Health if required to track a COVID-19 exposure event.

Queensland Minister for Digital Economy Leeane Enoch said users of the app have indicated that it is making the check-in process quicker and easier for both patrons and business owners.

“This app, which was launched just over a fortnight ago, is a tool in Queensland’s path to economic recovery, and it’s making it easier for Queenslanders to visit restaurants, cafes, hairdressers, libraries, pubs and gyms,” she said.

“The secure, free and contactless Check In Qld app is a safe and simple way for customers and staff to record their contact details and help keep Queenslanders safe. It’s wonderful to see more businesses and Queenslanders using the app.”

While it is mandatory for Queensland hospitality businesses to collect and store contact details for staff and customers electronically, it is not mandatory to use this app specifically.
