Govt. QR Codes: Response from NZ Ministry of Health

According to the Ministry of Health, the QR code issued by the government can only be used via the Government’s APP. If the customer does not have the APP and the business owner does not use an alternative option such as CovidTracing.co.nz, then the customer will need to be turned away. Non-compliance carries risk of enforcement from the government.

Ministry of Health’s APP Workaround for Businesses

CovidTracing.co.nz has developed a workaround for businesses and customers that do not want to use the Government’s Covid Tracer App.

Contact tracing is important. We are (currently) the most advanced contact tracing system that does not rely on an app being installed on anyone’s phone. In fact, we are quite vehemently against the entire mobile app based solution for contact tracing. It is not right. It is a perfect example of “the fact that something can be done, doesn’t mean it should be done”.

Businesses and customers must be given a choice to not have to download the app but at the same time, still be able to participate in health and safety. Downloading a mobile app isn’t the only way to contact trace. However, the government has deliberately taken this approach to create an environment of “untold enforcement”, not giving people any choice. We are changing that.

So… here’s what we are doing.

NZ Ministry of Health Covid Tracer App

Unlike some of the other countries in the world, trust in the government is not at the same level where everyone will want to download the app right away. In doing so, the Government has also, rather carelessly, tried to eliminate the market for commercial services such as ours. While any remarks about this are bound to fall on deaf ears, it is important that people considering this app understand the deliberate and anti-competitive action taken by the Ministry of Health today.
