Valenzuela residents don’t have to register to Pasig Pass and download a QR code when they step into any business establishment in the turf of Mayor Vico Sotto.

The local governments of Valenzuela and Pasig have signed an interconnectivity agreement for ValTrace and PasigPass, which are used in the respective cities as a contact tracing tool for COVID-19.

Starting December 7, Valenzuela residents only need to present their ValTrace QR codes when entering business establishments in Pasig City. The Pasig Pass QR code will also be recognized in business establishments in Valenzuela City.

Sotto shared on Twitter Friday, December 4, a photo of him and Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian holding signed copies of the interconnectivity agreement.

Gatchalian said the interconnectivity agreement will benefit Valenzuela residents who work and do business in Pasig.

“Marming taga Valenzuela ang nagtratrabaho sa Pasig lalo na sa Ortigas Center. Natuklasan ko din na may mga companies sa Pasig na nagdedeliver sa factories ng Valenzuela para sa packaging needs nila. Simula Monday, tatangapin na ang Valtrace QR code sa Pasig. At tatangapin na ang Pasig Pass QR code sa Valenzuela. (No new scanners needed)…at least now 1 QR code na lang ang kailangan para sa 2 cities. Salamat Pasig at Mayor @VicoSotto,” he said.
