A great idea from WA that could facilitate more people coming to Australia given arrivals are now restricted due to the number of hotel quarantine spaces.
The G2G Now app uses facial recognition and phone location data to ensure people in quarantine remain at their registered address throughout their mandated quarantine period. Using the app allows for virtual, in-app check-ins during the quarantine period. When users receive a push notification to check-in, they have a 5 minute window to take a photo of themselves. The app then matches the photo and location with the person’s registered details to ensure compliance with their quarantine direction.
