My Pet Peeve #18: SafeEntry Check Outs

Still forgetting to check out using SafeEntry.

SafeEntry

To be fair, the government said that checking out from a venue is not compulsory although encouraged, according to the SafeEntry website. Maybe that’s why people like us forget to check out from their SafeEntry? Touch wood, but if a confirmed case was at the venue you were at earlier and you forget to check out throughout the whole time outside, you might be mistakenly warned that you might be a close contact (which nobody wanted it to happen). I might have forgotten to check out from a lot of venues a couple of times, but I certainly wish that I won’t be informed that I was near a confirmed case. In fact, as of the time I’m writing this writeup, I wasn’t near to any confirmed case once; hopefully it remains that way.

TraceTogether gone ‘rogue’

DISCLAIMER: I know it’s too late to say this and I have no say about it, but this is just my thoughts anyway.
