The pass had its pilot run at the City Hall, and through an ordinance passed by the City Council last week, its implementation was expanded to also cover private establishments in the city.

“With Pasig Pass, people will no longer have to write in health declaration/contact tracing forms or logbooks—they will simply need to present their Pasig Pass QR codes and have it scanned by business establishments,” the local government said.

Sotto said SM Hypermart and SM East Ortigas were the first establishments in the city to implement the pass.

“Thanks to malls and other establishments that already use Pasig Pass, the digital contact tracing solution of Pasig City,” he said.

According to the local government, some business establishments and most city government offices have already started implementing a “No Pasig Pass, No Entry” policy.

People without smartphones can also have their QR codes printed.

“Some barangays have taken the initiative to help out in assisting their residents to register to PasigPass, so for those without internet connection or smart phone, you may check with your barangay,” the city government said.

The mayor assured that information collected in the city’s digital contact tracing solution is secured.

People may download their QR code at pasigpass.pasigcity.gov.ph.
