The Check-in QLD App became mandatory for Places of Worship from 1am on Friday 9 July 2021. Persons attending a place of worship are required to check in as they enter the building. It is required for all gatherings at a place of worship including worship services, weddings and funerals. It is currently required for outdoor gatherings.
The Check-in QLD App is also mandatory for community halls, and it is the responsibility of the congregation to ensure the appropriate signage and access to business profile is available for the hirer. It is not the responsibility for the congregation to ensure that the hirer is making all people check in – this is the hirer’s role. It is important congregations clarify this with their hirers.
Each congregation will need to register via the Check-in QLD App website to receive their QR Code, posters and business number.
It should be noted that congregations are required to have a “back-up” in place for an instance that the internet or the App is not working.
