Tēnā koutou Northland,

How consistent are you with the COVID Tracer App?

Several businesses and other industries have asked consumers to continue using the Ministry of Health's COVID Tracer App as the number of QR code scans drops off over the summer months.

The Ministry of Health reported that national scans on January 19 were down to around 640,400. Scans peaked between September 4 and 5 where over 2.5 million scans were registered.

With more contagious strains of Covid-19 being detected in managed isolation facilities, District Health Boards across the country are encouraging business owners to get their patrons to sign in in order to maintain their ability to contract trace in the event of a community outbreak.
