Police have been recently spotted in the Adelaide Hills and on the south coast checking QR code compliance of both businesses and customers.
Organisations can cop fines of up to $5,060 for blatant breaches, while customers can be fined up to $1,060.
A SAPOL spokesperson tells us if a person or business has been previously warned for a similar breach, that is when they consider issuing a fine.
"QR codes are a critical component in South Australia’s defence against the threat of coronavirus and, in the event of an outbreak, will provide important contact tracing information," a SAPOL spokesperson said.
All staff members of a business that is considered a defined public activity or general retail industry premises need to check-in when arriving at work as well.
