Contact tracing back on the agenda

17 November, 2020, Posted By tvlchamber

Until Sunday, Adelaide had been out of the COVID spotlight with minimal cases. Their current outbreak has highlighted how quickly three cases can become 18 and the importance of contact tracing to stop the spread.
Emergency restrictions are being implemented across SA with businesses closing to avoid further spread. Our Premier declared Adelaide a hotspot, and anyone arriving from Adelaide from midnight last night will be subject to 14-day hotel quarantine. Anyone who has arrived in Queensland from Adelaide since the 9th of November has been asked to self-quarantine at home and get tested. The SA Premier Steven Marshall highlighted that he expected other states to close borders, but if they can get on top of it quickly, he hopes that these restrictions can be lifted.
SA Health contact tracers will be going through all of the places that those who have tested positive have visited over the past two weeks, what a huge job! If an outbreak were to occur here in the north what would the contact tracing look like? Do you know everywhere you have been for the past 2 weeks? Is your business effectively recording who has been on your premises?
We can’t afford to close down again. SafeVisit.com.au is the website we use and trust to keep track of this for us. Over the weekend, they reached 500,000 check-ins across Australia, with over a thousand businesses using their platform daily. If you haven’t we encourage you to click HERE to check them out. Registering your business takes less than a minute and it is straightforward for your customers to sign in and out.
