THE PILOT testing of the Safe Davao Quick Response (DQR) code was successful, according to Task Force Davao commander, Col. Consolito Yecla.
“We successfully started the DQR scanning. While it is still not a mandatory requirement, it is a big help for contact tracing,” Yecla said.
“We are requesting all Davaoeños to secure the Safe Davao Quick Response (DQR) to ensure that they will not be denied entry in our checkpoints,” he added.
“We also remind everyone that DQR is only for essential travel,” Yecla said.
He further said they can still be denied entry even if they have DQR if their movement is not essential and without proper documents.
Local residents traveling within the city’s borders have to check Executive Order 62 for the requirements.
The visitors and returning residents have to check the requirements prescribed in EO 63-B.
