MANILA, Philippines — Starting next month, the Muntinlupa government will start implementing mandatory contact tracing through the use of quick response or QR codes.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has approved Ordinance 2020-181, which mandates the use of Staysafe.PH as an automated contact tracing application in commercial establishments, workplaces, churches, government offices and other public spaces.

Residents and visitors in the city are required to download the app and register a QR code.

QR codes for non-smartphone users will be generated by the barangays and distributed to their residences.

Fresnedi said they adopted the Staysafe.PH app to limit the transmission of the virus.

Under the measure, all establishments will be required to have scanners as well as personnel who will scan and monitor the authenticity of the QR code.

Violators will be fined P2,000 for the first offense, P3,000 for the second offense and P5,000 for third and subsequent offenses.
