DAVAO CITY — The Davao de Oro provincial government has warned its constituents to be cautious of individuals offering services for a QR Code system in the province, which it has yet to adopt.

In a statement released by Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy, he said the province’s own QR system was not yet available as they were still developing it.

“Aduna’y mga pangutana kabahin sa QR code system sa Davao de Oro, buot namong ipahibalo nga under development pa o kasamtangang ginaplastar ang QR system sa Davao de Oro (There were some who asked about the QR code system in Davao de Oro and we want to announce that the QR code in the province is still being developed),” Uy said in the statement. 

He said once the registration for the QR system will be available to the public, they would immediately announce it in the Provincial Local Government of Davao de Oro official Facebook page. 

Uy said the province will also post updates on the recent developments of the QR system that will be used by the province soon.  

Earlier, the governor said the province was still in the process of procurement of the hardware and software equipment for its QR code system. 

The QR Code System is intended for efficient contact tracing for its consituents especially in identifying the direct contacts of COVID-19 positive. 

Meanwhile, Uy appealed to the public to stay at home if they do not have any essential activities outside because the local transmission cases in their province is surging.
