Covid19 coronavirus: Hawke’s Bay business creates app to help with Covid-19 contact tracing

Hawke’s Bay based software company Webfox has created an app to help with Covid-19 contact tracing.

The app is called Covid-19 Register and it allows people to check-in to a business or venue with their cellphones instead of using a provided pen and paper.

The idea came after Webfox Director and Developer James Simmonds and Studio Manager Alexis Simmonds had been to a restaurant and were given a pen and paper to check-in.

The company has funeral homes as clients, who also brought up the issue of using paper and pen for checking in visitors.
