ALL users of government-issued phones, civil servants and social welfare recipients must download, install and activate the careFIJI mobile phone app.

This was the word from Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama during a press conference on the easing of COVID-19 restrictions yesterday. He also urged private sector entities to enforce the same.

“Most of our public interactions take place in the workplace, wherever that may be,” he said.

“Especially for those of us working indoors for extended periods of time, our places of work can pose a serious risk, that’s why working Fijians must download careFIJI.

“Government is leading that push through example by mandating that all users of government issued phones, members of the disciplined forces, and users with phones issued by government-funded statutory bodies, download the careFIJI App.

“Entities in which the Government holds an interest and social welfare recipients, other government assistance beneficiaries as well as civil servants should all download careFIJI.

“We’ll also be working closely with our private sector partners, particularly those in key economic sectors with large staff numbers, to encourage uptake of the app.”
