Town Of Essex - Adds QR code for entry
RE: Arena Contact Tracing and Updated Requirements
I ask that you distribute this to as many people in your organization as possible so the information can get out to all facility users.
Effective Friday December 17, 2021, the Town of Essex will now be implementing our own QR code for contact tracing (like most arenas in the area). Once a person scans the QR code on the entry door, they will be taken to the screening web page which will need to be completed. We are asking for basic information only for the purpose of contact tracing in the event of an incident. Users information will not be shared with anyone other than public health officials, should it be requested. Users will need to show a green check mark to come into the facility which shows that the screening was completed.
In addition, effective January 4, 2022, the Provincial Government has announced that the only method to show the vaccination status will be via the Government issued QR code (either digital or printed).
Please be prepared to have your code scanned upon entry to the arena.What does this mean for you:
1. Scan QR code at entry doors to complete contact tracing/screening
2. Staff will scan Government issued QR code to verify vaccination status
3. Provide Government issued ID to verify identify
