Police monitoring COVID QR code check-ins
Nurses, midwives and care workers are reminded to check in at work using the COVID QR codes or manual sign-in sheets. This also applies when entering businesses, venues and retail outlets. Visit the COVID Safe website for more information.
Police launched Operation Trace earlier this month to remind the public and businesses of their responsibilities as the state continues to safeguard against COVID-19.
The campaign includes the use of plain-clothes police officers to watch for people failing to check in and to ensure businesses have codes displayed.
Fines for individuals are $1060, and $5060 for businesses.
