Samoa Travel Tracer App
Samoa’s very own contact tracing app (Samoa Travel Tracer) will soon be available.
The mobile software application is the result of a collaborative travel-ready approach by Government through the Ministry of Health and the Samoa Tourism Authority to help ensure the country is well placed to respond to any spread of Covid-19.
Samoa Travel Tracer will use Bluetooth to trace close contact between users and data collected will be anonymous and encrypted.
The App which is a key component of Samoa’s ongoing travel-ready preparations, will be available on Google Play and App Store.
In a related development this week, Samoa’s Covid-19 vaccination programme entered its next phase with the Ministry of Health starting the second-dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. As of 17th June, more than 43,000 (or 32% of the eligible population) had received the first dose and more than 800 had received the second dose.
The latest developments continue to demonstrate Samoa’s commitment to ensuring it’s in a position to open its borders when the time is right and safely welcome visitors.
