Business establishments in the city were urged to use the StaySafe.Ph app, the official Covid-19 health condition reporting and contact training system of the government.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the mandatory use of the app and generation of quick response (QR) code is pursuant to Resolution 85 s. 2020 of Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Infectious Diseases, Executive Order 190, s. 2020 and memorandum dated Jan. 6 of the Department of the Interior and Local Government.  

The mayor tasked the Permits and Licensing Division and the Special Services Division to monitor the registration of business establishments in the app.

Non-compliance will be subject to appropriate sanctions as per the IATF order.

Here are the ways to register:

For one registration, go to www.StaySafe.Ph.

For mobile application, download in Play Store or App Store.

The DILG said the app aims to strengthen the detection and slow down the surge of Covid-19 in the region.

“The implementation of StaySafe.ph is a government initiative to increase efforts to track down close contacts of individuals who have tested positive for Covid-19,” according to DILG-CAR OIC Director Araceli San Jose.

 “The StaySafe.Ph contact tracing system mobile application is intended to be the default application for all Filipinos, especially when traveling, visiting establishments and offices and going to work which is why we are urging everyone to adopt the use of this application,” San Jose said.

“The app will also complement the efforts of the country’s more than 250,000 contact tracers who do physical contact tracing,” she added. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
