ValTrace, Antipolo Bantay COVID-19, MandaTrack, PasigPass, and now, Taytay Trail, is now interconnected starting this Monday, June 28.

The Municipality of Taytay, Rizal joins the consortia today, June 25, enabling the five (5) towns to have one QR code when entering different establishments within each locality.  

Tatay Mayor George Ricardo "Joric" R. Gacula II expresses his support with the Contact Tracing Network Consortium Agreement, “Napakalaking tulong nito upang gawing maging epektibo ang hakbangin na ginagawa ng pamahalaang bayan ng Taytay… Isa lamang ito sa mga hakbang na ating patuloy na ginagawa kontra COVID-19 at nakakatuwang isipin na buo ang suporta ng ating mga kalapit bayan laban dito...

Valenzuela City's ValTrace was first integrated with Pasig City's PasigPass last December 07, 2020 and with Antipolo City’s Bantay COVID-19 effective last January 10 this year. Mandaluyong City’s MandaTrack joined the network this March 01.

There will be no need to download different QR codes from the system used by the local government unit as it has a shared database in compliance with data privacy. The agreement also prompts for possible COVID-19 exposure and location logs of an individual which is being utilized by the LGU’s epidemiology and surveillance unit.

The local chief executives are more hopeful that more local government units will join the digital contact tracing solution through the use of QR codes.

Nakakatuwa po na dumadami na ang mga LGUs na kasama sa consortium na ito... Ika nga po, when there is unity, there is always victory. Sana po hindi Taytay ang huling LGU na iwe-welcome natin sa kasunduang ito,” Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Ynares said.

Valenzuela City Mayor REX Gatchalian initiated the Contact Tracing Network Consortium Agreement as ValTrace has been proven to be convenient and effective as a contact tracing system within the local level. Now with three (3) other cities and a municipality in the agreement, Mayor REX expresses his excitement as more LGUs join the solution to end the pandemic.

Natutuwa kami sa araw na ito kasi lumawak nanaman yung sakop ng consortia natin. Ibig sabihin, isang QR code lang gagana na sa Pasig, Antipolo, Mandaluyong, Valenzuela, and ngayon sa Taytay… Importante ito sa mga mamamayan dahil una, kumbinyente. Hindi mo na kailangan mag-download ng napakaraming QR code para lang makapasok sa mga establisyimento sa mga lugar na ito… Interoperable na at connected na ang ating mga QR codes,” Mayor REX stated.

Mayor REX also declares his gratitude to Taytay Mayor Joric saying, “Nais ko kayong pasalamatan Mayor dahil tinulungan niyo kami na mas maging efficient, mas malawak ang programang ito. Kami dito sa Valenzuela City, we look forward to our friends from Taytay visiting us kahit medyo malayo ang ating mga lugar.
