I've not seen a QR code displayed in a shop yet. We are asked to photo the QR code wherever we visit and all the shops and businesses are asked to diplay one. We should download the covid-19 tracer app to allow recording where we've been. I was surprised when I was asked "what's a QR code". See the picture example. That is what you need to point your camera at to use the app you will have installed. We should use it. Our cavalier attitude to covid-19 is not appropriate, it's inviting trouble. If just one infected person gets around it will be extremely useful for tracing where that person was a week or two ago and when they can't remember and who else may have been there the same time. Photographing the QR code gives our professional tracer teams the info they need only when they need it. Well, that's how I understand it and I will use it. Shops and businesses, please register a valid QR code and display it in prominent places for us to use. It takes seconds.
(Note, the example is not a valid code! It just looks like one)

Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
