Use of KyusiPass contact tracing app now required for QC businesses

LGUs can use their resources to develop mechanisms that will make contact tracing easier for their team.

Business establishments in Quezon City are now required to use the KyusiPass digital contact tracing app for their employees and consumers to further strengthen the city’s contact-tracing capability amid the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the city.

KyusiPass, a contact tracing app powered by SafePass, can help the city keep track of the visitors of every establishment within its jurisdiction.

Under the latest guidelines, business owners should secure a dedicated QR Code per establishment from the Business Permits and Licensing Department to tag its location.

For clarity, a lessee inside a larger establishment, like individual stores inside malls, should have its own contact tracing log.

Establishments that rely on manual contact tracing must encourage their customers to bring their own pen for logging in their name, address, and contact number.

Digital copies of these logs should be readily available to the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU) for any given time should contact tracing be necessary.
