Jaime Fresnedi picks Staysafe.PH as Muntinlupa’s contact tracing app
Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has chosen the Staysafe.PH app as the city’s official contact tracing app, as implementation of “No QR Code, No Entry” policy in establishments intensifies.
Fresnedi said the adoption of StaySafe.PH in Muntinlupa is in compliance with the national government’s recommendation for a uniformed contact tracing system to prevent further COVID-19 transmission, especially with the detection of a new COVID-19 variant.
The Muntinlupa City Council has passed City Ordinance No. 2020-181 mandating the installation and use of Staysafe.PH system as an automated contact tracing through the use of QR Codes in all commercial establishments, workplaces, churches, and government offices in the city.
Under the local ordinance, all establishments in the city are mandated to designate personnel to ensure each individual who will enter their premises possesses a StaySafe.PH unique personal QR Code. All customers, visitors, and employees of the public and private establishments shall not be allowed entry unless they present their own QR Code.
All residents and visitors who will enter, work, or do business in all indoor or enclosed public and private establishments in Muntinlupa shall be required to download and register at the StaySafe.PH application and secure a unique QR Code, which they can store on their phone or print for physical copy.
QR Codes for non-smartphone user registrants shall be generated by their respective barangays and shall be distributed to where the registrant resides.
