Return to Play Guidelines

We would like to take this opportunity to share our Return to Play Guidelines document. The whole purpose of this document is to provide information around contact tracing, health and safety, sanitisation etc. It was created in the hope that it would provide clear guidelines that should be adhered to during the return to sport. Depending on your circumstances this may be a helpful document.

iDMe contact tracing for NZ Sport

New Zealand sports organisers are required to maintain a contact tracing log to identify individuals who may have come into contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. Sector advice from Sport NZ can be found here.

Traditional sign-in methods such as a manual guest book (paper/pen) or touchscreen iPad are not desirable since people don’t want to touch shared items or surfaces. Also, these sign-in methods can be cumbersome when a number of people may congregate within a relatively short space of time, since they can cause queues and delay access.

iDMe solves this

Step 1

iDMe lets sports organisers turn your own smartphone or tablet into a QR Code scanner so you can instantly scan people into your venue, courts, turf, fields or clubrooms.

Step 2

iDMe lets people create their own personal QR Code on their phone with their contact information (name, address, email, phone number). They can save it to their phone home screen and only need to do this once.

It’s as simple as that.

Once saved, everyone’s personal QR Code displays on their phone even without wifi or data. They can then show their personal QR Code to be signed in and provide their details for contact tracing, completely touch-free.

Or self check-in.

There’s also a self check-in option that lets people register to attend without being scanned.
