In order to enhance the disease prevention and control in public venues and residential compounds in Shanghai, Shanghai Municipal Leading Group on Preventing and Controlling COVID-19 released notice on further application of venue codes and digital sentries to verify health information and put scanning codes for access in places to contain disease across the city. The details are as follows:
I. Upon entering the public venues with explicit disease control requirements, people should present their green Suishen health QR code and negative result of PCR test taken within 48 hours. They should also present the green Suishen health QR code when entering or leaving residential compounds save the special cases such as the need for emergency care.
II. Those entering public venues or residential compounds should cooperate with the staff there to scan the venue codes or present Suishen health QR code (physical ID cards) to scan digital sentries for verification.
III. Both public venues and residential compounds should arrange sites for placing venue codes or digital sentries. Venue manager or operator should make plans for site arrangement of venue codes and digital sentries and fill in the venue names and addresses to use the code and digital sentries correctly. It is not allowed to place venue codes and digital sentries in the sites inconsistent with the filled addresses. Venue codes should be posted prominently at the entrance of the venue. One site can have multiple venue codes posted. Digital sentries are to be set up at the entrances of crowded venues that require high efficiency of access for quick verification. Both public venues and residential compounds should follow the disease containment requirements to scan the code, check body temperature and verify face mask wearing to ensure that all in need should be scanned and verified with no one left behind. Those found not to be compliant with disease containment requirements will be denied access. Such individuals will also be reported to local disease control authorities promptly for initiating corresponding measures.
IV. Those people whose venue codes cannot be read by scanners or whose Suishen health QR code is not displayed can produce their ID cards or offline printed versions of their Suishen health QR code. After confirming their identities, the staff of venues will log in Suishenban App on mobile phones and scan the printed versions of Suishen health QR code to verify health status and register information. Those with normal health status will be granted access.
V. The enterprises, organizations, and residential compounds with no venue codes and digital sentries in place are not qualified to resume work, production, business activities or schooling, or apply to become “COVID-free communities.”
VI. Those venues or people causing the spread of disease due to their refusal to implement or obey the disease containment requirements such as “scanning for access” will be held accountable by law. Those venues or people causing incomplete or incorrect collection of information and affecting the results of epidemiological investigations due to improper placement, management or use of venue codes or digital sentries will also be held legally accountable.
VII. The personal information collected via venue codes and digital sentries will be used for epidemiological investigations only amid disease control according to minimal and necessity principle. Any organization or individual may not use such information for any other purpose.
This notice comes into force on the date of its release and will be subject to dynamic adjustment based on COVID-19 containment progress across the city. Thank for your understanding, support and cooperation!
