Contact Tracing Apps
As of 1:00am Wednesday 23 December, all businesses in the hospitality industry (such as pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafés) in Queensland must comply with new electronic contact information collection requirements per the Restrictions on Businesses, Activities and Undertakings Direction. The Direction will be updated to reflect this requirement. This is due to the high risk nature of the hospitality industry.
Over the coming weeks, it will be determined whether these expanded electronic record keeping requirements will be rolled out across other industries. This will be decided based on a risk assessment of other businesses and venues.
What will this mean for tennis clubs?
- Tennis venues that operate a café/restaurant with a seated dining area (hospitality service), must move to an electronic form or other digital method to capture contact information
- At this time, all other tennis clubs and venues can continue with either paper-based or electronic contact tracing.
More information on this directive can be found on the Queensland Government website.
Who does this apply to?
This new restriction will apply to all Queensland businesses in the hospitality industry (such as pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafés).
If these businesses already have an electronic or digital means to do this, we are not asking them to implement another system.
Some examples of electronic apps clubs can use are listed below:
