Contact tracing

Contact tracing

Under the COVID-19 Public Health Order, all schools and early learning services are now required to display a QR code poster for the NZ COVID Tracer App in a prominent place at or near the main entrances. 

For those schools and early learning services that don't have a poster yet, it's really easy to generate one here - QR form COVID-19(external link) (click ‘create your poster now’) [note this site doesn’t support Internet Explorer].

If you have any questions about getting your poster, or want help generating several posters, email There is further information about the App and creating a QR Code poster on the Ministry of Health website(external link).
Displaying a QR code should make contact tracing administration a lot easier for you, as you will no longer need to capture in your visitor register all parents and caregivers doing drop-offs and pick-ups. However, please continue to use your visitor register to record those coming on site for a period of time, which will also support contact tracing efforts.
For parents and caregivers who cannot use the App, you may wish to continue to record their details in a simple register when they do pick-ups and drop-offs.
As always, please remind your staff and parent/caregiver community to update their contact details if they have recently changed.

Remember, you can find more information and advice on contact tracing from the Unite against COVID-19 website(external link) and Office of the Privacy Commissioner(external link) websites.
