One month after Pasig City introduced the Pasig Pass, a QR code-based contact tracing app, a measure was passed last week by the City Council expanding the coverage of its use to include private establishments throughout the city.
In a statement, the Pasig government said, “With Pasig Pass, people will no longer have to write in health declaration/contact tracing forms or logbooks — they will simply need to present their Pasig Pass QR codes and have it scanned by business establishments.”
The QR code system was initially used at Pasig City Hall.
Mayor Vico Sotto said SM Hypermart and SM East Ortigas were the first establishments that adapted the pass.
Sotto said, “Thanks to malls and other establishments that already use Pasig Pass, the digital contact tracing solution of Pasig City.”
Pasig City reported that some business establishments and most city government offices have already started implementing a “No Pasig Pass, No Entry” policy.
