The recent positive COVID-19 case detected in Northland has highlighted the importance of scanning QR codes when we are out and about.
QR code scanning and Bluetooth tracing work best together.
Scanning QR codes with your NZ COVID tracer app creates a private record of places we have been, while enabled Bluetooth creates an anonymised record of the people we have been near.
Put simply; scanning is about where we’ve been, Bluetooth is about who we’ve been with.
New Zealand can have an ‘unstoppable summer’ if everyone continues with the simple health behaviours that have allowed us to hold the virus back.
To find out how to turn on your bluetooth tracing go to the
