Residents who don’t have smartphones or are not comfortable using the Service NSW webform can create a hard-copy COVID-19 check-in card with a unique QR code that contains their registered contact details.
Once you’ve created your card you can have it posted to you, or download a printable version immediately.
If you lose the card, or your contact details change, you simply create a new card. To create your COVID-19 check-in card, visit www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/create-covid-19-check-card
Note: This check-in method is only available at businesses that have a QR compatible device. It is not mandatory for businesses to accept COVID-19 check-in cards.

There are a number of high-quality services we can access free from home. This includes a mixture of self-guided mental health resources and programs as well as one-on-one connection to professionals through webchat, online counselling and phone services.
