Business establishments in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental were ordered to use and implement the contact tracing mobile application developed by the local government.

Mayor Renato Gustilo, in an executive order issued on November 9, said that contact tracing plays an important role in containing outbreaks of infectious disease.

“A creative and systematic approach on contact tracing has become even more vital in view of the recent spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in San Carlos,” he added.

He said the city government, with its aim to expedite contact tracing efforts, intends to employ the Quick Response (QR) code scanning through the use of Viral Assessment and Monitoring (VAMOS) application, developed by the city’s Information Technology and Computer Services Office, to make contact tracing easier.

The mayor said that mandating the use of the app has become imperative for every individual and all government offices as well as private, business, and commercial establishments in the city.

“The effective and efficient implementation of the contact tracing system requires the compliance of all concerned local government units, private and business sectors and the constituents of the city, specifically in the conduct of data gathering and processing of basic personal information as well as the ultimate use and implementation of the system within the territorial jurisdiction of the city,” Gustilo said.*
