Some governments require that anyone visiting a workplace must scan a government-issued QR code for COVID-19 contact tracing. When a case of COVID-19 is reported, the government uses this data to contact anyone who may have been exposed.
The government QR code is a separate system to the WhosOnLocation sign-in process, but it can be incorporated into your existing kiosk sign-in flow. This will ensure that visitors can easily comply with both the government requirements and your on-site health and safety policies.
Update your sign-in flow
There are two ways to include the government QR code. The method depends on the type of kiosk you’re using:
- A touchless kiosk or poster has a WhosOnLocation QR code that the visitor scans to sign in/out on their smartphone. You can add a question to your sign-in questionnaire that directs visitors to scan the government QR code poster.
- A standard kiosk displays sign in/sign out buttons on the home screen of the tablet or computer. You can incorporate the QR code by adding it as an image in a sign-in questionnaire.
