The removal of contact tracing at one of the state’s biggest supermarket chains comes as NSW had its biggest ever daily Covid case tally.

Concerned shoppers took to Twitter to voice their confusion over the change. 

Hey Woolworths, put your bloody QR codes back up,’ one person wrote.

‘It may not be compulsory now, but a hell of a lot of people wish to continue checking in, as per the advice of Dr. Kerry Chant. 

‘We should be following health advice of the medical experts, not politicians.’

QR check-in codes are now only compulsory for hospitals, aged and disability facilities, gyms, places of worship, funerals, personal services (including brothels), small bars, clubs, pubs and indoor music festivals with more than 1000 attendees.

The easing of rules around the check-in system means the decision lands on the business to choose whether to enforce QR codes or not.
