QR Codes - SA

MTA staff have been noticing on their visits with members that many have not implemented QR codes for contact tracing. While the threat is currently low in South Australia and everyone seems to have relaxed this discipline it is still a legal requirement for businesses to have contact tracing QR methods in place under the Police issued Directions Notice.

If you are unsure of how to proceed, MTA staff are available to support you contact 8291 2000 or email wr@mtasant.com.au. Or visit our COVID portal for information on QR codes.
