Sydney apartment residents are being asked to make their guests scan a QR code every time they enter through the front door.

The Macquarie Park Village complex in the city’s north has laminated contact tracing notices at the entrance to each fully-furnished unit, near a university and a major shopping mall.

Those entering each apartment are asked to use a Service New South Wales government app ‘to check in before entering’ like customers are required to now at restaurants, cafes, clubs, hairdressers and cinemas.

Another sign explains the rules for tenants and guests entering both the building and individual apartments in the complex on the corner of Herring and Epping roads.

‘Please ensure you and visitors are registering when entering the building/units,’ the sign said.

‘Tenants need to register once, visitors on every visit.

‘This will allow us to be Covid safe.’

The sign said ‘the responsibility to check in is on you’.

A woman who lives in the complex, asking to remain anonymous for fear of antagonising government authorities, said requiring residents to make their guests sign a QR code went too far.

‘It’s one thing to contact trace at public venues but I refuse to f***ing do this in my own home,’ she said.

‘This is beyond government overreach and a violation of privacy.

‘I’m not “checking in” to my own goddamn home on an app that sends directly to the government.’

Daily Mail Australia contacted Macquarie Park Village and property management group CBRE to ask if the sign-in system for guests was compulsory or voluntary and if they were concerned about possible privacy breaches.

While Sydney’s north has had a spate of locally-acquired coronavirus cases, the Ryde local government area has no existing active cases, despite being home to Macquarie University and Macquarie Centre. 

The NSW government at this stage is only requiring hospitality venues to make patrons sign in via a QR code.
