Fraser Coast backs Check in Qld tracing app

Visitors to Fraser Coast Regional Council’s public facilities will be required to sign in with the Queensland Government’s Check In Qld COVID-19 tracing app, as the State works to manage a growing COVID-19 outbreak.

Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said Council was supporting the use of the Queensland Government’s Check In Qld app.

“We all hope to see the end of COVID-19 soon, but in the meantime, health authorities need to be able to react quickly and immediately trace contacts in the event of an outbreak,” Mayor Seymour said.

“That’s why visitors will be required to sign in with the Check In Qld app when visiting any of Council’s public facilities, including libraries, customer service offices, aquatic centres, WetSide, Story Bank and the Bond Store.”

A mobile device is needed to use the Check In Qld app and pre-registration is available for Apple and Android devices at: https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au/check-in-qld

The Check In Qld app will also be used throughout Queensland at restaurants and retail shops.

Mayor Seymour said using Check In Qld was as simple as scanning a QR code on entry. 

“Registration is as simple as providing your full name, email address and a phone number,” he said.

“We know some of our visitors may not have a device so one of our friendly employees will be able to sign them in manually.

“The most important thing to remember is we are doing this to keep the community safe and comply with the Queensland Government’s contact tracing requirements.

“Personal data will be available to Queensland Health in the event of an outbreak.”
