Contact Tracing App Required For All Airport Passengers On Nov. 28
TRAZE – The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) announced that a contact tracing app is required for all airline passengers starting November 28.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, one of the major concerns for authorities is contact tracing. According to WHO the most effective way to reduce the spread of the virus is to conduct aggressive detection, tracing, and isolation programs.
Furthermore, due to reduced quarantine restrictions, the public can now board flights both domestically and internationally. This opens up the possibility of carriers being brought to or from the country according to some experts. As such, several countermeasures and requirements were imposed, among them was a contact tracing app called “Traze”.
“ALL airport passengers MUST download and register an account in the TRAZE Contact Tracing App beginning 28 November 2020, prior entering the airport.”
Registering for Traze is simple enough. All you need to do is download the Traze app on your phone and install it. Once installed, open the app and click the “Register” button. Next, register as “Individual”.
Following this, the instruction are easy enough to go through yourself. Finally, activate your account. Traze is a unified contact tracing application that allows authorities to efficiently conduct contact tracing efforts.
“With TRAZE, the contact tracing process can now be done in just a few minutes, unlike the usual and manual process.
