In the interest of community and workforce safety, as well as to establish a method of contact tracing within our facilities, the Town of Hinton Health and Safety and Strategic Services have prepared an optional method of proceeding through our facility access questionnaire in advance of entry.Each Town facility will soon receive posters, to be placed in highly visible areas at entry ways, with QR codes which connect to individual forms on our Town of Hinton website for the facility you are accessing. These forms allow us a form of pre-screening and information sharing regarding our Town of Hinton protocols. When you enter the facility, you’ll be able to tell our staff members your submission number, which we can confirm to include affirmations to not be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or having recently traveled to impacted areas.The confirmation page will also include an exit confirmation form link, which you can complete as you leave so we can ensure that you have safely left the building and in the event of a COVID exposure event, can determine whether you were present.The poster will also have the below best practice reminders.
All Androids after 8, and all iPhones after iOS11, have QR readers built into their camera. Use the camera to get the link, and complete our access form. For older or feature phones, a QR Reader app may be required. One option that users may find trustworthy is Kaspersky’s QR Code Reader. Kaspersky is an international cybersecurity company that aims to make scanning QR codes safe with its mobile app. Download for the Play Store here, or app store here.If you encounter issues using the codes, or have a feature phone not capable of using apps, you are also able to call the facility in question and respond to our questionnaire in this way.
