How contact tracing helps
To stop the spread of COVID-19, we need to trace the contacts of anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19. Recording people’s movements helps us to do this quickly and efficiently.
The faster we can trace contacts, the faster we can prevent further spread of the disease.
Who needs to collect contact tracing information
At Alert Level 1, venues or premises that have visitors and customers no longer need to record or hold records of people’s movement on their premises. But, businesses should help customers to keep track of where they’ve been by displaying the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster.
Get your QR code poster
The Ministry of Health has created a tracing app — NZ COVID Tracer. This app works by scanning a QR code on a poster at participating businesses. The app then keeps track of where someone has scanned so they know where they have been.
You can create QR code posters for your premises using the self-service form on the Ministry of Health website.
