A simple and secure contact tracing system which sees all residents and visitors issued with a personal QR Card. All businesses and government departments use a phone or tablet to download a free software to scan residents and visitors into their premises.
CookSafe is part of the national effort to protect the Cook Islands from COVID-19. The goal of the program is to quickly contact people who may have been in the proximity of a possibly infected individual.
Why is CONTACT TRACING important?
If a COVID-19 case has been identified on the island, the Ministry of Health will need to trace people who may have been exposed to the virus through the process of contract tracing. The process keeps Cook Islanders and visitors safe, while urgently sending care for those who need it. Contact tracing is best practice for those on the island in order to prevent widespread infection of COVID-19. Your information is secured through an encrypted database with the Ministry Of Health and is only used for the purpose of contact tracing for COVID-19 and randomly selecting prize winners.
