Davao City is taking further steps to curb COVID-19 infections through mandatory electronic contact tracing in all establishments, starting February 3.
Before entering, residents will have to scan their unique code generated from the website of Safe Davao QR (DQR), the city's own contact-tracing system which they have been pilot testing since November. Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio signed the executive order on Jan. 21.
