TAYTAY, Rizal Mayor Joric Gacula said that the town is now part of an integrated consortium where Taytay residents can now use the Taytay Trail QR code when entering different establishments in five other cities in Rizal and the National Capital Region (NCR).
In a Facebook post, Mayor Gacula emphasized on the many benefits of the Contact Tracing Network Consortium Agreement.
“Napakalaking tulong nito upang gawing maging epektibo ang hakbangin na ginagawa ng pamahalaang bayan ng Taytay… Isa lamang ito sa mga hakbang na ating patuloy na ginagawa kontra COVID-19 at nakakatuwang isipin na buo ang suporta ng ating mga kalapit bayan laban dito…”
The Taytay local government has earlier required residents to secure a QR code in a bid to effectively contain the spread of the coronavirus disease.
Dubbed as Taytay Trail, the local government executive said that residents in their municipality need not create a separate QR code in entering establishments in cities of Antipolo in Rizal, Pasig, Mandaluyong and Valenzuela in Metro Manila, adding that the web app of these localities have already been integrated with a shared database embarking on data privacy.
The agreement also prompts for possible COVID-19 exposure and location logs of an individual which is being utilized by the LGU’s epidemiology and surveillance unit.
“Matagumpay nating naihanay ang #TaytayTrail kasama ng iba pang contact-tracing app ng ating mga karatig bayan sa Metro Manila kagaya ng #ValTrace ng Valenzuela City, #PasigPass ng Pasig City, #MandaTrack ng Mandaluyong City, at #AntipoloBantayCOVID19 ng lungsod ng Antipolo. Less hassle at all-in-one na ang QR Code ng ating bayan sa kanila,” reads Gacula’s post.
The interconnection takes effect today, Monday, June 28, 2021.
