Solutions For Contact Tracing

(0)

In a rapidly changing landscape, leaders are inevitably presented with complex challenges. How quickly we adapt and how effectively we communicate is crucial at such times.

With NZ’s move from Level 3 to Level 2 about to become a reality, one particular challenge for schools and businesses is how to quickly set up measures that ensure they meet the Ministry of Health’s guidelines for contact tracing.

Save yourself time & use existing solutions

Rather than starting from scratch, here are a few existing solutions – some paid, some free – that work across a range of platforms, including a G Suite system, a website, or a smartphone app.

Help others save time; please feel free to comment below if you have already implemented a different solution to address this interesting challenge, or have other ideas on how it could be effectively addressed.

covid-register logocovidregister.nz is designed by a company called WebFox who comes from Auckland. This website is a free site that is also very easy to use. This site is slightly different in its approach from tracing.co.nz in that the business owner can log in to see the visitors’ details.

Registration is instant for this website and you can obtain a QR code once registered. A unique feature of this site is that you can log your visits to places as a sort of diary for personal use.

Google Form with QR code

0
(0)

Google Form logoThis solution requires you to use a Google Form to capture visitors’ details who wish to enter the premises.

This is a simple form that captures the visitor’s mobile number, along with any other information you might wish to capture. It is easily sent to people using a QR code that we can generate for you.

Please bear in mind these pros and cons:

  • Pros – it captures whatever information you need to capture. Quick to set up and implement.
  • Cons – some may not have a smartphone or find it tricky to complete, plus it takes time to enter which may not work if people are rushing to work. If users don’t have a mobile, you should consider capturing other information such as name/email also.

Test what the form looks like by scanning this QR code with your mobile phone:

How to get this solution:

  1. Make a copy of the form here and customise it…
  2. Create a QR code and print it for your entrances. Get in touch if you’d like help with this.

Parents and visitors to your school register via your Skoolloop app and click the check-in tile (or scan the QR code on the poster provided –  attached here for you to print). This will take them to a page where they provide their name and contact details, sign the form and check-in, upon leaving they simply click check-out.

All these responses collate in your Skool Loop App Console, which you are then able to export to a CSV file and print if needed.
