Electronic Contact Tracing
Victorian businesses must now use a digital record keeping system, like a QR code, that connects with the Department of Health’s contact tracing system.
Friday, 30 April 2021, was the deadline for businesses in selected industries to sign up to either the free Victorian Government QR Code Service or another API compatible digital record keeping service.
The Victorian Government QR Code Service or an API compatible digital record keeping service is mandatory in most customer facing industries, to help with COVID-19 contact tracing.
Businesses already using the free Victorian Government QR Code Service for record-keeping don't need to do anything. This QR code system already integrates with the Department of Health's contact tracing system.
