Help Us Keep the Cook Islands Safe
CookSafe is part of the national effort to protect the Cook Islands from COVID-19. Using your QR card to scan in wherever you can, means our Health Department can quickly contact you if you have been in the proximity of an infected person.
What is CookSafe?
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 smart phone or tablet to download a free app to scan residents and visitors into their premises.
Why is CONTACT TRACING important?
If a COVID-19 case has been identified, the Health Department will need to trace people who may have been exposed to the infected individual through the process of contact tracing. This process keeps the Cook Islands and its’ visitors safe and urgently send 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.
