Trace Together at SM: 4 reasons why this contact tracing program is important

As the country currently faces a surge in COVID-19 cases, SM Supermalls keeps its customers safe by strengthening its health protocols in all of its malls. SM continues to do its part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 with Trace Together, a nationwide end-to-end contact tracing solution that is compliant with government and data privacy guidelines.

“As many Filipinos visit our malls daily to buy necessities, it is our responsibility to keep them safe amid the rising COVID-19 cases,” said SM Supermalls president Steven Tan. “We enjoin our customers to help keep our communities safe by utilizing this contact tracing program that we have made for your safety and convenience.”

Help prevent the spread of COVID-19 with SM’s Trace Together contact tracing program.

Trace Together can be done in three simple steps when visiting your preferred SM mall, department store, hotel or any of SM’s retail affiliates nationwide – scan the QR code at the entrance, fill up the health declaration form and show the form to enter.

As you get ready for your next visit to your local SM mall for your essentials and more, here are some important things to know as to why this new contact tracing system is important.

  1. Prevention of the spread of the virus. By registering to Trace Together, you can take part in the collective effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 as the contact tracing program helps track and lower the risk of virus transmission.
  2. Go to different places easily. No need to log on to different platforms multiple times within the day. This contact tracing system provides a unified platform for all tenants at SM properties, retail affiliates, hotels, convention centers, and office buildings. You can use the same declaration which is valid for 24 hours in establishments where Trace Together is available.
  3. Promotes safety and convenience. Trace Together helps ensure safety as it is paperless and reduces physical contact. It addresses the tedious, repetitive and often unhygienic process of filling out forms in multiple stores, making the contact tracing process easier, faster and safer.
  4. Your privacy matters. The web-based system will only collect information volunteered by the user. SM also adheres to data privacy regulations and will not use any personal information for any purpose other than contact tracing.
