Fijians are encouraged to update their careFIJI app from the Google Play Store, Apple App Store or Huawei App Gallery as the QR CHECK-IN feature is now available.
According to a Government statement, the careFIJI CHECK-IN feature will allow individuals to scan QR codes available at the entry and exit point of businesses and other entities.
The statement says this will assist the Ministry of Health and Medical Services to quickly identify and isolate clusters and pinpoint the time of entry and exit at a location.
Attorney-General and Minister for Economy and Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says: “This new QR-code based function will strengthen the efficacy of contact tracing data, giving our contact tracer another leg-up to stay ahead of the spread of the virus.”
“As more businesses are approved to re-open with COVID-safe operational plans, careFIJI QR codes should be at the door of every single business in Fiji,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
“By keeping ourselves at the cutting edge of new COVID-containment technology, we are keeping Fijians safe, keeping COVID-safe compliant businesses open so that our people can go back to their jobs and have those jobs sustained and, create more employment,” he said.
The Ministry of Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport will facilitate the registration and approvals for businesses through the careFIJI CHECK-IN portal to obtain the QR codes.
The registration portal can be accessed using https://checkin.digitalfiji.gov.fj/
Businesses need to prominently display the QR code at strategic areas of their premises.
