Australia’s second-most populous state, Victoria, has begun piloting a home quarantine tracking program that randomly calls those quarantining at home and requests a selfie from them within five minutes in order to track their location via GPS.
Victoria’s Health Minister Martin Foley announced the launch of the new “home quarantine check-in process” during a press conference Sept. 28. Foley said the new app-based program will “add to the tools as to how our quarantining system can make sure that people are where they’re meant to be when they’re meant to be.”
Foley said the new program is directed at Victorians coming back from overseas travel “sooner rather than later as part of the national plan.”
The app randomly sends messages or phone calls to participants and requests a rapid response selfie from them in order to track their location via GPS.
