Use of ‘LeaveHomeSafe’ app to be strictly enforced from Nov 1

21 October 2021

By The SUN 

One can no longer enter a govt building without using the LeaveHomeSafe app 

Starting Nov 1, all government employees and the public will be strictly required to use the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile application when they enter government buildings or offices. No app, no entry.

Except for exempted persons, everyone will be required to use the app to scan the venue QR code and not just write their personal details on a piece of paper before they can enter government premises, a government press release said today, Oct 21.

The government said incomplete or even false personal particulars may be provided by people who opt to write them down on a piece of paper as an alternative to using the app.

The government said this can greatly reduce the efficiency and precision of contact tracing when a confirmed case is found. 

If the viral transmission chain cannot be cut as early as possible, it may give rise to the risk of a community outbreak, it said.

Under the new arrangement, only persons below 12 years old or 65 years old or above and those with disabilities that render use of the app difficult will be exempted from the new rule.



However, they will be required to complete a record form to register their names, the first four digits or letters of their identification documents, their contact numbers and the date and time of their visits. 

They are also required to present identification documents for verification at the request of the staff on-site during registration. The staff will also verify the contact numbers by making phone calls.

Immigration offices are included in the new rule

In addition to the exempted persons mentioned above, relevant government bureaus or departments may grant exemptions to individual persons depending on the actual circumstances, and register and verify information they provide. 



The government is urging the public to download and use the app as soon as possible. It is also appealing for their cooperation with the staff on site in following the instructions to minimize the risk of further transmission of the virus.

Under the new arrangement, unwillingness to use the app will not be considered as justification for granting exemption.

The government also reminded the public that any person who knowingly provides information that is false or misleading in a material particular is liable to prosecution.
