Further restrictions eased As at 1 December 2020, the Queensland borders will be open to all of New South Wales and Victoria. For further information, please see the Border Restrictions website. Contact Information: Is it really THAT important? YES! Contact information gained by organisations and businesses is an essential element to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. When a person is diagnosed with COVID-19, the local public health unit (PHU) commences Contact Tracing to assess the movements of the person with COVID-19 while they were infectious and determine who in community are considered ‘close contacts’. Close contacts will be directed to quarantine and may also be tested for COVID-19. Contact Tracing assists public health officers to contain and respond to the spread of COVID-19 within the community (Source). Without the contact information, the virus will continue to spread throughout the community. We all want to continue to enjoy sport, active recreation and fitness pursuits, to be outdoors and to spend time with our friends and family, so please follow the COVID Safe guidelines and practices. Regarding contact information, organisations and businesses must:
Prominently display your Conditions of Entry sign
Actively collect all attendees’ contact information
Ensure your system is efficient, secure, stores the data for 56 days and enhances privacy
Know how to access the stored data quickly when it is requested by the PHU
Remember the contact information is only for the purposes of contact tracing.
Participants and patrons:
Look out for and proactively sign-in
Provide correct details
Check out when finished.
Contact Information Apps/ Codes / Registers: Who’s using what? Now with many more participants and spectators able to attend sport, active recreation and fitness activities, many businesses and organisations are opting to collect contact information via an app, or a code. So, what are some state-level organisations using? Swimming Queensland has provided guidance to their affiliates about how to register attendees and options available through Eventbrite, Ticketbooth, Swim Central, JotForm, Google Forms or a manual process. Queensland Water Polo suggest using Team App for parents and non-participants to buy a free ticket using sites like Eventbrite or use the event portal in revolutioniseSPORT. Basketball Queensland’s associations and clubs can create an event inOwnUrGoal app to track attendees. Equestrian Queensland promotes check in / check out with the Nominate Equestrian App. Queensland Touch Football are using SafeVisit or EVA Check-in. Queensland Rugby League have guides to help all attendees to register with EVA Check-in. Football Queensland supplied clubs across Queensland with a simple QR code solution and resources assist clubs to track attendance. Please note, a notebook at the front counter that relies on patrons to voluntarily provide contact information without verification from staff is an unsuitable method to collect information. Do you have another suggestion for collecting contact information? If so, send us your story and a photo/video to let us know!
