Staff and visitors will be required to use the government’s contact-tracing app LeaveHomeSafe or register their personal information before entering government buildings from the beginning of next month, the government said Wednesday.

The move is aimed at better protecting public sector workers as well as the public, it said.

The authority has announced that public services will be fully resumed from February 18 given the gradual stabilisation of the epidemic situation.

After people check in at places they visit by scanning a QR code, the app will alert them with a notification if they were at the same venue at about the same time with a recently confirmed Covid-19 patient.

Notification will contain information on where and when the exposure might have occurred.
