From January 1, 2021, the NSW Government has made it mandatory for our venues to use the Service NSW QR code to check-in our patrons, in addition to our current sign-in practices for the Registered Clubs Act.
This change follows a recent Public Health Order and announcement from Premier Gladys Berejiklian regarding updated COVID-19 contact tracing requirements. In the Premier’s announcement, she again urged people visiting venues to “check-in” using the Service NSW app.
Why are my details being captured when I attend a COVID Safe business?
To protect the people of NSW and ensure NSW Health can quickly contact people in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak, under the Public Health Order, Registered Clubs are required to keep a record of all staff, visitors and contractors that have attended the premises. The information will only be used for the purposes of tracing COVID-19 infections if they occur.
What is the COVID Safe Check-in feature?
The COVID Safe Check-In is a new feature on the Service NSW app which provides a contactless method – a QR code – to record your visit to COVID Safe businesses.
What is a QR code?
A QR code is like a barcode. When signing into a COVID Safe business, you can use the Service NSW app to scan the business’ QR code provided to them by the NSW Government.
How do I scan the QR code?
Customers will log in or download the Service NSW app, select the COVID Safe Check-in tile from the homepage, and follow the prompts to scan the QR Code and sign in.
What if I don't have a smart phone?
In situations where you do not own or have in your possession a smart phone, you will be required to sign-in as per the existing entry requirements.
For what purpose will my information be used?
Service NSW will only collect your name, contact details (as available on your MyServiceNSW Account), and date and time of entry so that NSW Health may contact you for the purpose of contact tracing, should it be necessary.
What if I don’t want to provide my details?
Some businesses are required to record customers' contact details under the Public Health Order, to assist with any contact tracing that may be necessary. Under the Order, you’re required to provide your details upon entry to these businesses. If you choose not to provide your details, you’ll be refused entry.
