The QR Code is the registrant's digital footprint, recording with whom he or she has had contact within the covered establishment on a specific day and time. Scanning the QR Code of each customer or employee inside the establishment will generate the digital logbook that the covered establishments must keep.

To ensure compliance with the digital logbook maintenance requirement, covered establishments must submit electronic logs to the City's Contact Tracing Team on a daily basis.
