Introduction of Service Victoria QR Codes

The use of Service Victoria QR codes for electronic record keeping is mandatory for all workplaces to enable the effective contact tracing of any COVID-19 cases. This now includes schools.   The public health intent of including schools in the QR code check in system for workplaces is to capture those visitors accessing school buildings or indoor facilities, but not those entering the school grounds for reasons such as school pick up.


QR codes will be required to be used by:

  • all visitors, including contractors, external Department staff and building and maintenance staff
  • all parents who enter buildings when on the school site

QR code check ins will not be required for staff or students, or parents who come onto school grounds for drop off or pick up, but do not enter buildings.


Jacana School for Autism only permit parents/carers to enter buildings  through reception area.  There will be a QR Code Check in poster to access.  Please note that the QR Code Check in doesn’t replace our existing sign in and out processes. These will continue to be used to record visitor attendance, in particular the purpose of visits, for legal and regulatory obligations.


Kiosk check-in service

For visitors and parent /carers who are not able to check in with a smartphone phone or tablet, services a  Kiosk check-in service will be available at reception
